Back Green Co Workers and Join Our Rally! May 31st, 1pm - 3pm Shirecliffe Green Co site, Douglas Road, Sheffield, S5 8WA

GMB members at Green Co in Sheffield are fighting an ongoing battle against an employer that has sacked two of our reps and spent thousands of pounds on an ‘army’ of zero hours workers to ‘take the slots’ - the job! - of our members who stand up for themselves.  In recent weeks they’ve also scrapped the living wage.

Green Co is a subcontractor who the Council say they have no faith in. We’ll continue standing up for our workers but we need your support too.

Speakers:
Martyn Mayer - Sheffield TUC and Unite the Union
Bill Adams - TUC Regional Secretary
Harry Harpham - MP for Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough
Peter Davies - GMB
Jim Rodgers - One of the two sacked GMB Green Co reps
Sharon Lowrie - Sacked Green Co Finance Director and whistle blower
Bryan Kennedy - Unite, sacked convener, London Housing Charity

What we’re fighting for:
• Reinstatement of the sacked reps.
• Reinstatement of the sacked managers who blew the whistle and challenged bad practices from the outset.
• The living wage, our stolen bonus and allowances back.
• An end to bullying.
• Zero hours contracts to be ended.
• Decent welfare facilities.
• A service run for Sheffield and not for personal gain.
