GMB@LACD LEISURE AND SPORT UPDATE

GMB Scotland has made it clear to the LACD Board that we cannot and will not support the downgrading of staff within the Leisure and Sport Service.

The Aquatic Review report was discussed and it was agreed that there needed to be further work/development before the proposals could be approved by the HR Committee.

GMB Representatives met with the Director and Head of Leisure & Sport to discuss our concerns around the proposals set out within the Aquatic Review.

GMB Scotland raised a formal failure to agree on behalf of our members, in order to protect jobs and services.

Please be assured that GMB Scotland will continue to listen to our members and will work with you to ensure that staff within LACD, have a strong voice that will better protect jobs and services for the people of Dundee.

Leisure and Sport Management Team will now enter into a comprehensive staff consultation period.  Therefore, you will be entitled to representation at 1-2-1 meetings. Please contact your workplace rep, should you be invited to a 1-2-1 meeting. If you are not sure who your workplace rep is, contact the Dundee office 01382 225 491.
