The coronavirus pandemic has put many people at risk of redundancy. As a GMB member, if you find yourself in this situation, we want to support you through these difficult times.

We will always be alongside you fighting to save jobs and to protect our industries for the future, but inevitably some employers will struggle to stay afloat.
