GMB members employed by Serco are represented by the Plymouth Health Branch.
40% of Serco staff are members of the GMB Trade Union and some others will be members of the other recognised Trade Union. GMB has the largest membership.
Our local Serco Representative and senior GMB officers meet approx. every six weeks with senior Serco managers to address any major issues. We call this meeting the JSNC meeting; the GMB and Unison are the two recognised Trade Unions with Serco and a copy of that agreement can be found at the bottom of this page. If you wish to know what we are currently discussing via this forum please just ask us.
The GMB is always looking for new ‘GMB Organisers’ – If you are interested in taking on a challenge please get in touch with our Serco Organiser Charlene Sibley or the Branch Secretary; Ray Stewart. We will be more that happy to discuss the GMB representatives role in the workplace. There is no cost to you for any training and development and the recognition agreement will give you the time you may need to undertake any GMB officers role within Derriford.
Problems? Don’t wait until it makes you sick, Speak to us ASAP! – We could help you.
Charlene is more than capable of supporting you and raising issues with the employer after discussion with you.
- Before contacting your GMB Steward, please make your concerns are known to your supervisor or line manager.
- If this approach fails to deliver the support you would expect, then speak to us, we can raise the issue on your behalf after we discuss the situation with you and gather the facts.
