FAO: GMB DCC Homecare Members
RE: GMB Scotland Homecare Meetings/Drop in Clinics
Previously we contacted you after a number of concerns had been received from the workforce regarding predominantly, a lack of communication and consultation from DCC and changes to walking routes within the homecare service.
We will be running a series of meetings/drop-in clinics throughout September, where your branch and GMB Scotland officers will be available to speak to yourselves around the concerns you may have, so we can have a full picture to take to management. We will be in touch with the dates and times once they are confirmed.
In the meantime, if you have any issues that require attention please contact the Dundee office on 01382 225491 and if there are any of your colleagues who are not yet members of GMB Scotland, then please encourage them to join https://www.gmb.org.uk/join-gmb
