GMB Scotland in Dundee City Council: Homecare Workforce Concerns

FAO: GMB DCC Homecare Members

7th June 2022

Dear GMB member,

RE: GMB Scotland in Dundee City Council: Homecare Workforce Concerns

We have been made aware of a number of concerns from Homecare workers, thank you for raising these with GMB.

The concerns in question, focus mainly round the new walking routes, a lack of communication and consultation from Dundee City Council.

GMB will be looking to arrange meetings with you in the coming weeks to understand the issues from your perspective so we can challenge them together.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, please contact the Dundee office. Tel: 01382 225491

For any group of workers, the strongest position they can be in is to have representatives from that group – if you would like to find out more about the role of a rep or what it involves, please get in touch for a chat.


Many thanks,

Keir Greenaway
GMB Scotland Senior Organiser
