Dear Member

We met with your employer yesterday (1st August) to discuss managing workforce change.

You’ll be aware the policy was rescinded and DCC are now seeking to reach agreement over some of these issues.  GMB will always consult you over any proposals and you will always be the ones who decide the outcome.

The meeting was a broad discussion about what we would like to see as a package of support for any member who may be redeployed and was the first such meeting.

No firm proposals were provided and nothing has been agreed.

Please contact your rep in the first instance if you have any questions.

We are always looking for members from under represented groups to become involved in your union. If you feel like you would like more information then please contact the Dundee office 01382 225491 for details and full training and support is provided.
