GMB challenges Public Sector Exit Cap

If you would potentially be affected by this payment cap, GMB needs to speak to you to help with our judicial review

GMB are challenging a recent decision to cap the amount of money a public sector worker can live with as a severance package as they leave their job.  This would include redundancy situations, and given the situation we find ourselves in, we believe it is only right that anyone made redundant should get all of what they are entitled to by law and according to their contract.

More details of the judicial review, what we are seeking to challenge, and what people might be affected by this cap are in the bulletin which is available for download on this page.

If you are one of the people who would be affected by this cap, even if you are not at risk or redundancy or of losing your job at the moment, we would still like to hear from you.  Please contact your local representative or Branch Secretary in the first instance โ€” if you are not sure who this is, call our regional office on 020 8397 8881 and we will let you know how to contact them.
