GMB Politicians


There are over 80 MP's who are members of GMB. We have an active GMB Parliamentary Group who help to make sure issues that matter to GMB members are raised in the House of Commons. Sitting on our executive are:

Jo Stevens MP (Chair)
Richard Burgon MP (Secretary)
Dawn Butler MP (Vice-Chair)
Emma Lewell-Buck MP (Lead for Public Service)
Ruth Smeeth MP (Lead for Manufacturing and Commercial Services)
We also have a GMB Group in the House of Lords - more info on that coming soon.
Through our Parliamentary group we lobby Government and MP's over policies and issues that affect GMB members. If you have any concerns you would like to raise please contact your Regional Political officer or MP direct. When writing to your MP it is always worth copying in your regional Political Officer as they may be able to help if no response is forthcoming, their contact details are listed under the National & Regional Officers page.

GMB MP's have helped raise a wide variety of issues from; Sunday Trading to Asbestosis. They have assisted in such campaigns as ASDA and Remploy.
