GMB in the news

Over the past week GMB have secured a huge win for members working within the Public Sector.

On Friday 12th February GMB Union, which represents more than 300,000 workers in local government and the wider public sector, welcomed the Government’s decision to withdraw its exit cap regulations.

The Government’s u-turn means that the perverse regulations that have hit low paid workers the hardest will now be revoked.

In the middle of a pandemic, when public sector workers have put themselves in harm’s way, the union said that Ministers have been forced to back down from a further cut to low-paid workers’ terms and conditions.

The decision followed a Judicial Review application brought by GMB with the support of Thompsons solicitors and Oliver Segal QC.

GMB argued the Regulations would have a disproportionate impact on workers who share protected characteristics, including women workers, older workers, and disabled workers.
