GMB Response To Snap General Election

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

GMB has responded to Theresa May's call for a snap general election on June 8.

Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:

"It is right that an un-elected Prime Minister goes to the polls, but this election cannot and should not be fought on sound bites and buzzwords.

"This election must be about the lives, hopes and worries of real people, not Westminster games.

"That means tackling insecure work, the housing crisis, a health and social care system close to breaking point and being clear about what the Government's Brexit plan means for each and every one of us."
