GMB members campaign against cuts at Rowley Owls Nursery

The GMB is calling for the immediate reinstatement of a rep suspended from work after campaigning against cuts.

The rep, who has not been identified by the union, successfully led a campaign to stop bosses at Rowley Owls Nursery in Rowley Regis ploughing ahead with plans to axe places for toddlers under two and to reduce its opening hours.


Now the rep has been suspended until further notice.

GMB organiser Gillian Whittaker said: “We consider that this member has been targeted and victimised due to the successful campaign run by GMB earlier this month.

“We consider that this is grossly unfair and are requesting that this member is re-instated as soon as possible. We will do everything in our power for this member to get this suspension lifted.

“We are hoping that the school see sense and re-instate the rep without delay.”
