Dear member,

As you are all aware, we ran a recent ballot on the decision to close Beechgrove. This has overwhelmingly resulted in you, our members, voting to fight for your jobs and to keep Beechgrove open.

We will write to Perth and Kinross Council this afternoon to advise them the outcome of the ballot

We (GMB) will be in touch with you all very soon (time and date to be agreed) to discuss what type of action you are willing to take. GMB are behind you every step of the way.

In voting to close down the last publicly owned care home in town, the IJB has ignored thousands of local voices.

It is a scandal that unelected officials are driving home cuts that will have dire consequences for you, vital services and the service users and their families.

If you are aware of union members who did not receive a text or email, then please show them this letter and ask them to call the office on 01382 225491 to update their details.
