Following lengthy negotiations with the 'Company' (as they like to be called) the Trust is delighted to announce that for the first time in our existence the PLC Board will be calling for support for a resolution from the Trust. This will be the first time ever that the Board have recommended that a shareholder requisitioned resolution be supported - notwithstanding the fact that subsequent to AGMs they have implemented our proposals on a number of occasions.
This resolution relates to the process of genuine consultation between the Board and supporters, an area in which the Trust have played a leading role throughout our existence. Matters relating to the governance and ownership of the Club is, of course, the reason the Celtic Trust exists.
At this very late stage - normally our resolutions would already have been submitted - the Trustees of the Trust decided that although we had some reservations about the wording of the resolution, we would accept the assurances of the good faith of the Club and hope that this will represent the beginnings of a genuinely consultative structure where fans' organisations can be consulted in good time and can influence policy for the good of all of us.
We are continuing to discuss with the Club some proposals we have made with regard to the Living Wage. We will announce during this coming week the results of those discussions and whether we will be putting a resolution to the PLC AGM on this issue this year, so please look out for that.
In the meantime, it is now imperative that we obtain the required 100 shareholder signatures. The resolution requisition form (with the wording and the supporting statement) can be found here. You can print it out, sign it and return it to the Celtic Trust at
The Celtic Trust, PO Box 2066, Glasgow G32 2AX
You can print it out, sign it, scan it and email it back to us at our new email address TheCelticTrust@gmail.com
If you are a holder of ordinary shares in Celtic PLC and you wish to support this resolution then please do this as a matter of urgency.
