Close the Gap round-upTelecoms & Financial Services November 10 2017
As the first week of our Close the Gap campaign tour of the UK draws to a close, deputy general secretary Andy Kerr has congratulated branches for all their efforts.
Andy stated: “I’d like to personally thank branches across the country who’ve pulled out all the stops to raise the profile of our Close the Gap campaign which formally launched this week.”
Activities have taken place in Doncaster, Dundee, Blackburn, Truro, Belfast and Glasgow where members have shown real verve and support for the campaign by taking part in vox pops and signing our petition. As well as membership support, branches have garnered support from local politicians and the local press as well as some high profile MPs, providing much needed publicity for the union’s campaign to expose the second class treatment of around 2,000 Manpower employees working on the BT account.
