GMB members set to strike

GMB members working at Sandwell Leisure Trust are set to strike next Friday (18th December) as their employer continues to dive head first into attacking terms, conditions and pay of its staff.

GMB members have been left with no choice but to take action against this employer and have voted overwhelmingly for industrial action, to protect their employment terms.

After months of talks broke down, GMB and UNISON members are set to walk out on 18th December as they refuse to be held to ransom by their employer over changes to contracts.

Voting to go out on strike is never a decision that a worker takes lightly, not less those who have created an award winning service for the people of Sandwell and just want to be treated fairly at work.

We urge Sandwell Leisure Trust board members to think again, take this threat of fire and rehire of the table completely and to allow our members to continue doing what they do best, helping the people of Sandwell live healthy lives.
