GMB Trade Union - 200 New starters at Wales and West

GMB, the union for gas workers, has welcomed 200 new Wales and West Utilities starters for induction training after the company insourced its gas replacement and repair contracts from Morrisons Data Services.

The Union held induction events to welcome the insourced staff at across the region, including at three times English Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs Sandy park Clubhouse alongside others events in Bristol, Colwyn Bay, Newport and Tewkesbury.

The contacts were transferred from previous utilities contractor, Morrison Utility Services, after commitments were secured by GMB to move towards an unsourced labour model.

GMB Senior Adie Baker said:

“We’re really pleased that Wales and West have listened to us and brought these jobs in-house.

“This move is fantastic news for the workers involved, and will ensure they have real job security, increased standards of health & safety, improved pension provision.

“It shows the value of a strong recognised union and partnership that GMB has with Wales and West Utilities, and the real difference we can make for workers.
