Despite the 2016 pay being unresolved with the company, the 2017 pay anniversary is due shortly, so your GMB stewards and officers are seeking your views on what you would like to see included in your GMB pay claim for 2017.
May we thank members for taking their time to complete their ballot papers and for taking part in the democratic process regards you pay, terms and conditions.
In GMB Newsbrief No 7/2016 we reported to you that the company had changed the offer made to you regards Pay for 2016 and which a majority of GMB members voted by a 62.9% in favour to accept the offer.
In GMB Newsbrief No 5/2016 we reported that the members had voted by a 62.9% in favour to accept the company 2016 pay offer.
Dear Colleagues, In newsbrief No5/2016 GMB reported that the membership ballot on pay this year was accepted by members by a majority of 62.9%. The company have been in contact with GMB regards its employee health care scheme which was part of the pay package negotiated in the 2016 pay negotiations. As a result of the discussion with the HR Director for the company, GMB has now agreed to extend the cover to employee partners, or if employees wish to forego the benefit they can have a cash equivalent instead. I am sure colleagues will welcome this new approach.

We received the company offer in writing on 3 May 2016 for the pay and conditions award for 2016. There are two reasons why there has been a delay in balloting our members on the company pay offer:
In GMB Newsbrief No3/2016 we advised members of the pay claim that was submitted on your behalf. GMB met the company on the 25th April to present the pay claim, and also receive financial details to assist with the negotiations. The company were not able to present all of the financial details that your GMB reps requested. However, the company have agreed to provide some more information.
