Our trade union representatives, organisers and senior organisers do a fantastic job supporting our members in the work place; helping negotiate collectively at the companies we are recognised with and individually in the work places we are not.
Every day of the year GMB Workplace Representatives are solving members' problems and providing expert guidance and advice to members at work on a range of issues. Our trade union representatives, organisers and senior organisers do a fantastic job supporting our members in the work place.
Our job is to get the best deal for GMB members at work. We are committed to building a strong organisation in every GMB workplace to help make every workplace safer. We are an actively campaigning Union, fighting for fair pay, equal opportunities and improved working conditions.
If you are a GMB member and have been injured as a result of an accident in work, or you or a member of your family have been injured outside of work, and wish to make a claim then contact UNIONLINE on 0300 333 0303.
GMB has 20,000 GMB trained Workplace Representatives – members who voluntarily give their time to negotiate, advise and represent work colleagues who are GMB members. Backing up these GMB Workplace Representatives is a network of full time GMB Organisers and specialists who are experts in the world of work.
GMB trains new and existing workplace organisers to equip them with the skills and knowledge to carry out their Trade Union role. Training consists of on-the-job training and dedicated training courses to help you perform your role effectively.

To be able to continue your GMB membership, and to ensure you have a voice in your workplace, we will need to transfer you to Direct Debit payments. For more information and to switchover click here.
