GMB Scotland Defending Your Interests

Dear GMB Member

GMB Scotland in Terex – Wage Negotiations update

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

That’s why we have recently held a number of meetings with your employer. The first of these were presentations held by your employer. The second part was the union questioning some of the points presented by your employer.

We asked for greater transparency in relation to the company and its expenditure. At first the company refused to provide this information but have now covered some of the points discussed, although not yet all of them.

We had a full meeting on the account of the company and the issue of negotiating your pay on the Retail Price Index (RPI) – a measure which more accurately reflects the true cost of living and when currently measured against the Consumer Price Index (CPI), amounts to around 1 per cent of a difference.

These talks will reconvene on Thursday 23 August, and your GMB representatives are committed to getting the best offer for you and your family.

In the meantime, if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me at or call 0141 332 8641 during office hours, Monday to Friday.
