GMB Tayside Contracts Members in Dundee

Yesterday, Steph Smith raised the proposals to cut school crossing patrols from some schools at the Dundee City Council Budget meeting. She described how this would impact on our members, but also what this could mean for our kids. Safety should always come first.

The council have thankfully seen sense and withdrawn this dangerous proposal for now. Be assured that this is in no small part to the pressure from your union and other community groups.

I want to thank Steph for her contributions yesterday.
