Call UNIONLINE.

Whatever problems you have we will try and help you, providing quality local legal advice. So put 0300 333 0303 in your phone and remember, GMB is your union and this is your union law firm. It is not out to make a fast buck, its job is to provide the best legal service in the country to GMB members.

• GMB members accused of a work related criminal offence get initial advice and representation. Just call the 24 hour criminal law helpline.

When calling any of the legal helpline numbers try and have your membership number to hand.


If you have a problem at work:

• Involve your workplace representative. GMB representatives are trained to know your rights at work. They will do everything they can to help you resolve your problem through negotiation.
• If you do not have a workplace representative you are still legally entitled to have a GMB representative accompany you to a grievance or disciplinary hearing. Just call 01709 255955 and you will be put in touch with a GMB representative.
•Sometimes problems at work require legal action. That is why Yorkshire & North Derbyshire Region GMB has its own Legal Department providing expert employment law advice and Employment Tribunal representation.
