Current Union Representatives Questions

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Q: What training for personal cases will you be providing for representatives?
A: There are a number of very experienced personal case reps in the RCTU  who have gathered a wealth of material that has been adjusted to reflect the  training required for HMRC guidance and systems and also for the new legal  case management arrangements of the RCTU. Full and comprehensive legal  support ,including Tribunal handling and management, is available from our  legal service agreement.

Q: What facility time are you providing?
A: None. Until at such time we receive formal recognition from the employer  – no facility time is available. We have every intention of approaching the  employer when a sufficient size of membership is obtained, and numbers are  continuing to increase at a very steady rate, with a view to seeking formal  recognition from HMRC and then, of course, request the appropriate amount  of facility time commensurate with membership size.

Q: Will RCTU is seeking to affiliate with the TUC?

A: Yes. It has always been a stated aim of the RCTU.
