GMB Scotland Pledge Campaign To Save 2000 Jobs And Services Threatened In North Lanarkshire Council

This is devastating news to the workforce and the wider community who rely on council services says GMB Scotland.

GMB Scotland has pledged campaign to save 2,000 jobs threatened by cuts at North Lanarkshire Council. and save as many jobs and Services as we can for the citizens of North Lanarkshire Council.

Paul Grieve, GMB Scotland Organiser, said “This announcement by North Lanarkshire Council to make 1,095 full time equivalent posts redundant is a real body blow to the area. It comes hot on the heels of the announcement by TATA to make 300 workers redundant in the steel Industry.

The Council are using 1095 a full time equivalent figure to mask the actual job losses which will be nearer 2,000 jobs lost in the council.

This is devastating news to the workforce and the wider community who rely on council services.

GMB Scotland pledge to campaign to save as many of these jobs and services as we can for the citizens of North Lanarkshire.

We will be using any consultation period and the time between now and February when the budget is set to reduce the impact on jobs and services. 

We will work with all interested parties to get this proposal overturned.”
