ISS Hairmyres

Dear GMB Member,

ISS Demonstration and First Minister’s Questions

I want to thank those of you who joined us at our demonstration outside the Scottish Parliament yesterday, as we called on the politicians to support our campaign to put a stop to “Project Greenfield”.

For those of you who couldn’t make it, you can see in the video below that the campaign was raised in the chamber at First Minister’s Questions, where Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that NHS Lanarkshire has proposed solutions to ISS that would keep your wages where they belong, in your pocket.


It is now up to us to keep the pressure on ISS to take up one of these options and put a stop to “Project Greenfield”.

If you haven’t already, you can send a message to your employer by voting in the consultative ballot which closes on Tuesday 7th May.

After the ballot closes and your reps have counted the votes, we’ll communicate the result to you and plan the next steps for the campaign.
