The need for a full, transparent and independent investigation following a number of very serious allegations made by way of anonymous correspondence received by the union has been agreed.

A recommendation was made to - and agreed by - GMB’s Central Executive Council (CEC) members last week that this investigation should be a fully independent one. 

The CEC met again today to determine the scope of this investigation - and has determined that Karon Monaghan QC be formally instructed to undertake the investigation and make recommendations.

We have no doubt that our union will emerge from this stronger. 

We will - now and always - continue with our mission as a campaigning union to improve the lives of our members and ensure all our people are proud to say they’re GMB.
