Who is the RMI?

With a membership of 7 500, the RMI provides a very effective collective voice that gives members considerable clout in negotiating better trading conditions. As the lead voice in the motor industry, the RMI is a member-driven organisation that constantly seeks solutions to concerns raised by members in the day-to-day running of their businesses. Members' needs are serviced through six regional offices, manned by 83 professional staff. In addition, the RMI is the major employer representative of the Motor Industry Bargaining Council, playing a significant role in labour negotiations as well as the industry's social benefit schemes, dispute resolution processes and exemption procedures.

Objectives of the RMI
  • To promote, protect and encourage the interests of members and the motoring public by setting and maintaining proper standards of service and ethical trading conditions in the industry.
  • Facilitates the settlement of labour disputes between members and their employees by conciliation/mediation/arbitration.
