A huge welcome to Clydebank to all those attending this year's National Equality Conference - have an amazing time! And while we're here - what a good time to celebrate the great work our equality activists do. If you know a GMB member, activist or employee who's making equality in the workplace a reality, please nominate them for one of this year's President's Leadership Awards for Equality: https://gmbcomms.typeform.com/to/xNJYWP
Stuart Fegan, National Officer, said: “Our members will invariably ask why they have to potentially pay with their jobs to compensate for the failing plan that Iain Conn (CEO) has brought to the Centrica business. We do not know where these potential job cuts will fall or if any sites of business units will be affected - but we will be obviously engage with British Gas urgently to understand these proposals. Members will also question why a great institution such as British Gas has got itself in such a mess in such a short period of time."
Centrica can’t simply cut their way out of this mess by axing British Gas jobs. They should invest in the growing parts of the business and speak to our members about how to make efficiency savings/increase customer satisfaction. 🎥 Stuart Fagan on Sky News just now >>

Our members in KFC franchises are missing out on shifts with no idea when their stores will reopen. UK workers in KFC restaurants are losing out due to Colonel Chaos – their contracts are stuck in the bargain bucket. KFC and DHL MUST make sure affected workers are paid for the hours they’ve lost.
