"Having support brings comfort and reassurance"

Sean, Refuse Collector

I have a young family and I have worked within the role of a refuse collector for the past 20 years. 

I enjoy the job as it allows me to contribute to keeping homes and streets clean and tidy, speaking to residents and offering support to the vulnerable and elderly, I feel they have gained my trust as I have worked with them for so long.

Working through these difficult times with COVID 19 has made me feel proud of what I do and the support and praise from the public has been very rewarding. I am grateful to be able to assist through these difficult times keeping homes clean.

Being part of the GMB Union for so many years has been very beneficial to myself and colleagues, having such support with you brings comfort and reassurance when help and guidance is needed. 

I will continue to be part of this great union throughout my working years and I would highly recommend such support to any future employees and colleagues.
