Dear Member
GMB have agreed that if any of you wish to volunteer to work you can. These are for very specific roles only that have been risk assessed and there should be no deviation from these.
Our advice as your union is to remain at home and keep yourselves safe, however if you wish volunteer you can by calling Laura Herd on 01382 432286 or emailing by 4.30 tomorrow.
This will be on a rota basis and the GMB have agreed that this will include job and finish.
Please remember there should be no congregating in depots or yards and only one person to a van. This will be reviewed weekly by your stewards, Ian and Jimmy and please don’t hesitate to contact them in the first instance if you have any questions.
The only way you volunteer is by calling or emailing Laura Herd, there will be no calling around from managers or supervisors or pressure put on you to go to work.
Please make sure you keep yourselves safe and well.
