Bio:
I have worked within the NHS for the past 36 years, I was aware of the importance of the union and the constant daily fight in protecting ourselves and others within the workplace. Thankfully I had some good mentors who guided me into my first post as a union rep and later being part of the executive committee within a large hospital. Over the years the various unions came and went, brought down at the hands of those, who even today continue with the oppression against the working person. A few years ago I decided that my then union, was doing very little to protect me or my colleagues within the workplace and I made the decision to change. I joined the GMB after much research and made the decision that this was " a can do and will do" union, something which has been missing in so many other unions for so long. I joined the Z60 Branch and was elected as workplace organizer health and safety rep and an accredited rep and was recently elected as Branch President I love my role and the support that it not only gives to members, but also to me. It's a forward thinking branch that is moving forward with a multitude of ages and experiences from all areas of workforces throughout the city and county. There is no I, only we. I am proud of the union and of our branch and I cannot emphasise enough the importance of belonging to a union, if you haven't already decided now is the time, more so than ever, to join. The process is simple. Do it today. Join the GMB.

Hello my name is Matthew Buckley I am a shop steward at Wyman Gordon Lincoln ltd. We manufacture engine parts for plane engines, I work as a maintenance fitter predominantly with a welding back ground. I have been a GMB rep for too many years now. I am also a father to two teenagers Cormac and Mia i have a beautiful wife and have been happily married for fifteen years. I decided to become a rep because at my workplace the rep was retiring, he had not only been a friend but a great source of information often taking away my questions and getting back to me a few days later, he would always chat, and I thought nothing about our obvious age gap but In fact, found he supported me and I am sure I kept him young at heart. I have been lucky enough to complete many courses put on by the GMB, I feel my biggest achievement was standing in front of 800 people at congress 2014 and having my motion for NHS workers passed. I have represented numerous people within my workplace on a whole host of issues ranging from flexible working, bullying, grievances, disaplinary matters to our annual pay rise talks with management. I am an active member within the z60 branch and would actively encourage all members to participate because in unity we have strength but by being divided we will fall. I took the plunge 4 years ago and became the branch president and hope by the friends I have made on the way I have done and continue to do a good job Mat Buckley
