GMB Congress 2020 cancelled
GMB Congress 2020 which was due to be held in Blackpool between Sunday 7 June and Thursday 11 June 2020 has been cancelled, following a decision of the Central Executive Council's Finance & General Purposes Committee, due to the impact of Covid-19.
This was confirmed when the following statement from GMB's General Secretary and National President was released:
"The CEC’s Finance & General Purposes Committee has, this week, taken the decision to cancel this year’s GMB Congress, due to be held in Blackpool, due to ongoing concerns about the current outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19). Although this was not an easy decision, GMB members, activists and employees are our top priority and we strongly believe this is the right decision to safeguard the health and wellbeing of all concerned, given the current circumstances."
Anyone who was due to attend should have been contacted already by email from the Regional Secretary's department.
