July 2023



Dear Members

We are writing to thank all GMB members who took part in the recent consultative ballot on the revised 2023 pay offer and to announce that GMB members have voted overwhelmingly to reject the company’s offer.

We have notified the company of the ballot result and met with them on Friday 7th July and have now jointly agreed to proceed to the collective conciliation stage at ACAS. We are currently awaiting suitable dates from ACAS which is now expected to be in September due to summer holidays.

We appreciate your understanding and ongoing support as we navigate through this process.

We will keep you updated on any further developments.

Please ensure that any colleagues who aren’t yet GMB members have their say on pay by joining GMB: https://www.gmb.org.uk/join-gmb

In Solidarity
