Dear member,

Your union has been made aware that Aberdeenshire Council intends to start formal consultation with unions and the wider workforce around changes to seasonal hours.

GMB Scotland is a member led union that will always consult with its member around workplace changes.

As such once the council’s position via a business case has been presented this information will be shared with you to ensure that our members have their voice heard within the workplace.

We are still in the grip of the Covid-19 recovery and service management have already forgotten the contribution the workforce has made over the last 12 months in supporting operational viability across Aberdeenshire.

Aberdeenshire Council have already tried to impose this change without consultation the lessons of the last year must be learnt that means consulting properly with the workforce and not imposing changes; changes that are at best reckless and at worst could have serious consequences for workers health and wellbeing.

Kind regards
Stephen Massey
Aberdeen Regional Organiser
