GMB MEMBERS WIN AT TRIBUNAL
Bulletin Issue 15 March 2022
Following a redundancy announcement within Wilko, a number of GMB members were transferred from Night Shift on to days as an alternative to redundancy.
As part of the agreements between GMB and Wilko these members were entitled to contractual pay protection on their shift premium for 52 weeks.
Wilko decided to only protect this payment for 8 weeks and following representation from GMB this matter was taken up by our Trade Union Solicitors to dispute the unlawful deduction of wages claim.
We are pleased to announce that the tribunal found in favour of our members, and they will now receive their full compensation.
This is a reminder to Wilko that the GMB will support its members wherever there is an injustice and ensure they receive their full contractual entitlement.
If any member has recently found themselves in a similar situation, please contact the GMB so we can ensure you are treated properly.
If you are currently not a member, join today at www.gmb.org.uk/join and make sure you too are protected.
GMB National Officer
