GMB@Tayside Contract Members in Schools

FAO: Tayside Contracts Members in Dundee and PKC

Dear Member
We understand that some managers informed you that we agreed to you all being at work the extra week of the school holidays. That is simply not true, and those managers have been told to retract those statements. We felt that we needed to let you know directly in case that does not happen.
Behind the scenes we have been discussing this with the employer and what is expected is that in special circumstances or in an emergency, some people may be asked to work, but that all others in catering, cleaning and school crossing patrol will not be asked to attend work and will be paid in full.
Please let us know if you have still not had the message relayed to you from your line managers by emailing or if you feel as though you are being asked to attend for work or training that is not meaningful to allow us to deal with those situations.
GMB Union does not make decisions for you. YOU are the Union, and we will always let members have a say.
