Dear Colleagues

GMB Scotland in British Gas

Yesterday the company sent out an email in response to the bulletin by GMB Scotland, which voiced members concerns over the future of the Waterfront site.

The communication from the business makes it clear that they are looking at closing sites. Since first intimating that this would be the case as far back as the summer, senior management still haven’t got their act together, yet in the meantime are happy for you to enter Christmas with this uncertainty hanging over you.

No wonder then that staff morale is at an all-time low, with sickness absence through the roof. The fact the Waterfront site in Edinburgh already resembles a ghost town, will not reassure colleagues that there is a secure future with British Gas.

That the business seems happy to leave the axe hanging in the air, while simultaneously asking you to continue on regardless with your hard work, shows a total disrespect for the workforce.

GMB Scotland is clear, the company is in a mess and it is down to a failing and inept senior management. With your support, your union is committed to fighting for a future for all British Gas employees.

Dear Colleagues

GMB Scotland in British Gas

Today it has come to our attention that the Waterfront site may be for sale. We are waiting to hear from Senior Management about their intentions. If the company is selling the business from underneath us as a workforce it would be a scandalous betrayal by a failing senior management in British Gas.

Your union is demanding answers from senior management. If you are a member of GMB Scotland please be assured your union is committed to a fight for a future for our site at Waterfront.
