Dear GMB Member 

GMB Scotland in Pladis / McVities – Alternative Shift Patterns

The priority of GMB Scotland is the defence of your interests. 

GMB Reps met with Management yesterday, Thursday 31 May, regarding shift patterns.

We discussed the breakdown of the current shift compared with alternative shift patterns surrounding a 5 day 8hr shift and a 5 day 12hr shift and the costs involved.

It has been agreed jointly that we can take this issue no further as it would be costly to both Pladis and our members.

The next meeting will be on the 15 June where we will be discussing the Flex agreement.

As ever, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at allison.cairns@gmb.org.uk or call 0141 332 8641.

Dear GMB Member 

GMB Scotland in Pladis / McVities – Flex Up Agreement

The priority of GMB Scotland is the defence of your interests.

As you are aware there is a requirement for you to Flex Up today, Friday 11 May and Friday 18 May.

GMB have already raised a grievance on the basis that as per the spirit of the Flex Up Agreement you would Flex Up in your line grouping, this grievance was not upheld and GMB have appealed this.

To date we have not had a date for the appeal and Pladis have refused to maintain the status quo.

We will raise another grievance to this effect immediately.

If you have any questions you can email me at allison.cairns@gmb.org.uk or call me on 0141 352 8112
