Local Government

GMB Southern has members in every Local Authority in the region, from Dorset to Kent, from Oxfordshire to South London.

Due to our recognition agreements with these councils, we are able to negotiate and fight for jobs, services and terms and conditions on behalf of our members throughout the South-East.

We are able to do this more effectively when we have strong branches, fully trained representatives and an active membership.

We believe GMB members should be leading campaigns to fight the cuts. This means building a fight back which involves service users and the local community, holding demonstrations, meetings and rallies and ensuring there is press coverage.
