General Secretary Tim Roache and Regional Secretary Paul Maloney working hard in the GMB field at Tolpuddle. There are still burgers and sausages left if you want to come down, but hurry as they’re disappearing fast!
21 years ago today Labour’s proposals for a National Minimum Wage were voted down by the Tories in Parliament. One year later, despite fierce opposition, a Labour Government introduced it and saw millions get a pay rise ✊ Now the fight to end poverty pay continues 💷👇
Thank you so much to Matthew for meeting GMB members today working for ISS at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. He is right these workers are vital to the success of our NHS and deserve to be treated the same as other NHS workers
GMB Union members St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust employed by Mitie have voted overwhelmingly for strike action. Mitie management can avert a strike by committing to protect patient safety and our members' jobs & hours and negotiate in good faith to resolve this dispute.
Solid picket line today at CT Plus in Wandsworth. Members have been waiting since April for a decent pay offer. They look after some of the most vulnerable kids - getting them to school safely. They deserve the London Living Wage!
Yesterday Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, Member of Parliament for Tooting, came to visit our members employed by Mitie. As ballot papers hit our members letterboxes, time is running out for Mitie to meet our basic demands of no compulsory redundancies and no cuts to hours and then negotiate a sensible way forwards.
