PPE

The issue of inadequate PPE has been raised with us consistently over the last few months by you, our members. As a result of representations made to Fife Council, a PPE working group has been established and you are represented on this group by your trade union colleagues.

In order to provide us with supporting evidence at that working group, we have issued a survey to our members which relates to PPE provision in Fife council.

For those of you who we have email addresses for, this has been issued to the email address we have on record for you, and for the remainder a survey has been posted.

If you are a member and you believe that you fall into this category (i.e. you regularly wear PPE for your work) and you have not received a survey, please call 01382 225491 to arrange for us to issue one to you.

Fife council spent over £11 MILLION on consultants in the last two years alone (15/16 -16/17) – we believe some of that money could be much better spent on providing adequate clothing for our members who are required to work outside in all weathers.

If you are someone who is not a member of GMB and you would like to take part in the survey, please contact the Dundee Office on 01382 225491 where we can arrange to provide you with a survey and application form.

The quickest and easiest way for us to contact you is by text and email. If you have not received either of those, then contacting the number above will allow us to update your details for future communication.

If you’re not already involved in your union, get in touch with your local reps to find out how you can.
