GMB@Angus Waste Update

Dear Member


We have seen the memo from Angus Council stating that all employees have now accepted the latest change.

We are particularly unhappy with the way in which you have been bullied into accepting these detrimental changes, and will be raising this with the council.

GMB did not agree to these changes, and if it was communicated to you that this was the case, then you must let us know.

The fact that they intend to recoup some overpayment from you, when you would have been entitled to pay protection if you had not accepted this, is quite frankly astonishing and again, we will be raising this with them.

If you have any questions or queries in relation to what’s happened with this, then please get in touch with us at the Dundee Office on 01382 225491.

We are also keen for someone in Angus Waste to become a trade union representative. Full training and support will be provided by GMB and paid time off from your employer would be given to carry out your role.

Please get in touch if you are interested.
