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.
