GMB members say Yes to political fund

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

GMB Members say yes to political fund in the fourth ballot since the 1980s.

Members recognise the importance of having a political voice and they will not be silenced says GMB.

GMB members have voted in a postal ballot conducted by the Electoral Reform Service to retain a political fund.

This is the fourth time GMB members have voted to retain a political fund since the Tory Government in the 1980s introduced a law requiring trades unions to hold a postal ballot of individual members every ten years on the issue.

Cath  Speight, GMB National Political Officer, said "Once again GMB has had to spend members money conducting a political fund ballot asking a question we know the answer to and again our members have said Yes, 95% of GMB members recognise the importance of having a political voice and they will not be silenced."
