The GMB union have launched a ‘key workers’ survey in order to gather views on their ‘After the Applause’ campaign, which set out the case for key workers to receive a pay rise.
The union has actively worked to achieve a better deal for workers who have been systematically undervalued and underpaid.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, our carers, NHS workers, bin men, janitors, caterers, shop workers, transport workers and so many others were working more hours for less pay. During the coronavirus pandemic, they have kept the country going, often putting their own lives at risk.
Local MSP Neil Findlay is urging those who believe that our key workers should be provided with a pay rise to complete the GMB’s survey in order to determine the next stage in the campaign.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“Key workers have kept this country running throughout one of the most challenging times in recent history, putting their lives at risk whilst doing so.
“I am fully behind GMB Scotland’s campaign to give key workers a well-deserved and long overdue pay rise.
