The GMB Union says they're pleased Birmingham City Council intends to honour equal pay settlements for women but is concerned about jobs and costs for users if the NEC group is sold off. The council says it can't afford to invest in the complex and help it grow.
Whilst happy that BCC intend to honour their obligations in respect of equal pay settlements we in the GMB have grave concerns that the NEC group is to be sold off to the private sector. This will inevitably lead to increased costs to the residents of Birmingham and the wider users of these prime facilities and could lead to either job losses or reduction in terms and conditions of employment.
