Birmingham City Council has broken the law and stolen wages
GMB Union, Birmingham’s largest staff union, has today responded to the announcement that Government Commissioners have been appointed to undertake the day to day running of Birmingham City Council.
Rhea Wolfson, GMB Union’s Head of Industrial Relations, said:
“For decades Birmingham City Council has broken the law and stolen wages from low-paid women workers.
“The quickest, cheapest and fairest way to get a grip of the crisis in Birmingham is to work with GMB to end the discrimination and compensate the women.
“That’s what GMB has been urging the council to do for almost 2 years, and that’s what we’ll continue to push for because it’s what’s best for Birmingham.”
