GMB Tayside Contracts – Schools Update

Dear GMB Member,
We met with management today and have now had an assurance that they are going to allow catering staff to wear a mask if you want to wear one. They will be supplying a reusable face mask to you. They have them on order and they will be distributed as soon as they have them. Please do not use your own, as these have been risk assessed as unsafe for hygiene reasons. We are pushing for face masks to be made available to everyone and believe that TC should be supplying these.
We have also had an agreement that testing will be available for all Tayside Contracts staff in line with all other school based staff. Tayside Contracts will put out a communication with the procedure for when you want to get a test.

There’s never been a more important time to be in a union, and GMB is the campaigning union in schools. We have secured improvements in your health and safety as well as regular testing. If you know anyone who isn’t in the GMB then let them see this communication and encourage them to join us here:

GMB will never compromise on your health and safety.
