“This is a good result for the members, and really shows what results you can achieve when you stand together, united against your employer”, says GMB Southern
Your Pay is the most important issue for most GMB members. After all, it’s the main reason we go to work. As much as we may enjoy our jobs, we wouldn’t go to work for free!
GMB is committed to fight for a fair pay deal for its members, whether in the public or private sector, including a major campaign for a proper living wage of £10 an hour for all workers.
Employers are obliged to consult and negotiate with us for pay deals in all recognised workplaces, so the more of your colleagues join the union, the better chance that we can secure a pay rise for you all. Studies suggest that workers in a unionised workplace can earn up to £4000 a year more than those in non-unionised workplaces.
“Our members cannot go on being treated so disgustingly by an employer contracted by the Council with no end in sight to the current issues”, says GMB Southern
“Amey are stating they cannot afford an increase, but in reality they are bidding for contracts they cannot run or manage properly”, says GMB Southern
“Lessons are not being learnt and now GMB members are furious that plans are afoot to continue their exploitation”, says GMB Southern
“The poor performance of Amey is nothing more than shambolic management”, says GMB Southern
