Dear Member
There appears to be a bit of confusion over what’s been agreed with the GMB and Dundee City Council.
At no time have we agreed that you cannot speak to the press or you must go through your manager before you speak to us.
Those texts from DCC are only going to Homecare workers and it is unacceptable that they are attempting to gag you from speaking out, particularly as you are a predominantly female workforce and we have raised these concerns with the leader of the council. Please don’t feel threatened in any way.
You as GMB members and your GMB reps are perfectly entitled to speak out where you have concerns and we fully support that. There has never been a more important time than right now for you to tell your stories.
Once again, thank you for all you do and please sign up to the rally for key workers event that we are holding on Thursday night via facebook which you can do by following this link:
