Airedale GMB Members - Could you be a Workplace Rep?
We hope you are well and that you are keeping safe.
Our local Airedale K40 branch is undergoing redevelopment with the goal of creating a more effective union movement at the hospital to fight for better pay and conditions. Building a strong network of reps across all departments is key to your strength as a workforce. Would you be interested in becoming a workplace rep?
As we develop, our intention will be to hold regular elections for all reps on an annual basis, but we are putting a call out to members from all departments to express an interest in becoming a workplace rep now so that we can improve communications to members, respond quickly to any issues you are facing at work and to present a coordinated voice to management.
Reps provide support at both disciplinary and grievance hearings, identify and address health and safety issues and raise concerns with management at our regular partnership meetings. GMB offers a fantastic training programme for new reps - you will get paid release from work to attend along with lots of support from the GMB family.
Jake Crangle (Porter - AGH Solutions) has already expressed an interest to become a rep and so we will get the ball rolling by starting his training this month.
If you are interested in becoming a rep please get in touch via email, or if you want to discuss the role of a rep in more detail please get in touch with Joe Wheatley on 07598946673.
We hope to hear from many of you.
Please keep safe and make sure you let us know of any workplace concerns whether PPE, contract related or anything you feel the union can assist in addressing.
