Here are two of the readers' comments I've received on yesterday's post about the GMB's pay ballot
I have just seen your post regarding the latest GMB ballot.
I have been a member of GMB for 27yrs, I and other co workers have not had any correspondence from GMB regarding this important information.
I for one will calling and asking these questions.
GMB at it's best
Can you explain why union members are being balloted over a pay offer - yet there was no ballot over the introduction of the original WPBR pay scheme?
Now that's a very good question about the absence of a workforce ballot over the introduction of Glasgow's controversial WPBR pay scheme - because the WPBR had profound implications for every council employee's pay.
Yet the trade unions didn't ask their members to approve the introduction of the WPBR, the WCD (Working Context and Demands scheme), the NSWP (Non Standard Working Pattern scheme) or the EDC (Employee Development Commitment scheme).
I'll have much more to say on this subject in the days ahead.
