“The members have themselves to thank for earning a massive pay rise, through their activism and commitment to going on strike”, 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.
“We will leave no stone unturned to organise our members to fight back and this co-ordinated day of action across the NHS trusts is just the beginning”, says GMB Southern
“The shocking way these outsourced workers are being treated further highlights the importance of eradicating outsourcing in our public services”, says GMB Southern
“ISS are rubbing salt into the wound by asking their workforce to take out ‘bridging loans’ to enable them to change the pay cycles”, says GMB Southern
“Non-compliance with the terms of the National Minimum Wage as well as the National Living Wage is more widespread than people think”, says GMB Southern
