Dear GMB Member

GMB Scotland in Advinia – GMB challenges pay day change puzzle

Since your employer announced forthcoming changes to your pay date, many of you have been in touch to tell us about your serious concerns about the impact this could have on your lives.  And above all, you want more clarity from your employer.

That’s why we have written to the Advinia Head of HR & Recruitment today (Friday 28 February), asking your employer to make clear exactly what the implications for you are as a result of this pay date change.  You can read the letter in the "additional resources" at the foot of this page.

We know how hard you are working, the quality care you provide to vulnerable people and the personal responsibilities you have away from the job. Every penny is a prisoner and any detriment to your pay could have real consequences.

The very least your employer can do is be crystal clear with the facts over this pay day change. Please be assured we will be in touch with any updates as soon as we get them from Advinia.  

In the meantime, if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me on 07710 618901 or email
