GMB@Making a Difference in Care

Dear Care Member

We are always looking for our members in Care to help us make things better for you and we need your help to do that.

Have you considered being a workplace rep? Paid time off is granted for training and attending meetings. It is a great opportunity to develop new skills and make your work a better place.

GMB Scotland is also about to carry out some research to help us improve your working lives and it will be shaped by you, our members in Care. Please look out for details which will be sent to you very soon.

Please call us on 01382 225491 if you are interested or would like some more information on how to get involved in your union.

Did you know?

Only GMB Union provides a solicitor to attend any SSSC hearings with our members in care.
