GMB Union Update – ACAS Agree to Arbitration


Dear GMB Members,

We hope this newsletter finds you well and we want to thank you once again for your patience.

Like you, the LNC are exceptionally frustrated by the continual delays, the Company are obviously doing everything they can to avoid participating in arbitration.

Your LNC can only guess that the Company are scared about potentially having to pay members any additional money that comes from their own pocket, not just what DWP have funded them.

However we can report some good news.

ACAS have advised that they are prepared to arbitrate on the pay for 2022/23.


But this won’t come as a surprise to members now, the Company are still trying to avoid arbitration and are seeking another meeting (18th September) to table another offer.

We cannot emphasise this enough that the Company is deliberately doing this to try and undermine your collective strength and position.

Your support is invaluable in these negotiations, and we thank you for standing together in solidarity.

If you require further information, please contact your local GMB Representative or GMB Office.

Please ensure you share this update with non-members and encourage them to voice their opinions on pay by joining GMB: https://www.gmb.org.uk/join-gmb

In solidarity,

   GMB DWP LNC                                                                                                                                                                  GMB National Officer
