GMB trade union has today announced a campaign win for members employed at Leisure facilities across Sandwell.

After months of campaigning and strike action earlier this month, Sandwell Leisure Trust have agreed to union demands to return to nationally agreed terms & conditions. This will mean that workers at the Trust can be confident of a strong union representation and fair pay through a return to national pay structures at the Trust.

Darren James, GMB Sandwell, said:

“This is a big win for GMB members in Leisure facilities across Sandwell. After months of campaigning, we’ve shown what we can do when we fight and stand together.

Our strike saw GMB members join other unions in delivering a clear and unmissable message to Sandwell Leisure Trust Management; our members demand fairness at work.

GMB won’t stand by as employers undermine the hard won rights of our members at work. Join GMB and get us on your side today”.
