GMB@Tayside Contracts Fairmuir Depot Workplace Visit

FAO: GMB Tayside Contracts Members in Faimuir Depot

Dear Member

GMB Union will be visiting tomorrow morning, Wednesday 20th April from 7 am until 8 am and will be in the Claverhouse suite at the Fairmuir Depot. These meetings have been requested by GMB members.

GMB members are welcome and can bring along colleagues who are in no union.

Unfortunately, there have been difficulties in reaching agreement with Tayside Contracts on who can attend the meetings. We have been advised that office-based staff including supervisors are not allowed to attend tomorrow.

We have requested another meeting for next Wednesday morning to meet with those of you who are not able to attend tomorrow and will keep you updated.

Please note, Tayside contracts have asked that you adhere to the risk assessments in terms of Covid 19, therefore GMB would advise that you do so.

We look forward to seeing you.

GMB Scotland Organiser
