Dear Colleague

GMB Legal Assistance Package

As you may be aware the GMB’s legal assistance package for members has recently changed as follows:

For all legal issues other than Brulines, (see below), GMB has arranged a heavily subsidised rate with Andrews Angel Solicitors. The cost to each existing member is £250 plus VAT for an initial 2 hour case review. If, during the review, issues are identified that may have wider implications for the GMB membership as a whole or opportunities to establish precedents and case law are identified then GMB may consider further financial assistance. Otherwise, members are then responsible for their own costs after having received advice.

The procedure for accessing the legal assistance package is for members to contact me as below asap and you will be sent a questionnaire to complete and return. I will then forward the paperwork to Andrews Angel Solicitors who will contact you direct.

Regarding Brulines issues, we have an information pack and questionnaire available on request to members and issues will be reviewed on a case by basis by our in-house legal team at National Office.

I trust this information is useful.

Yours sincerely

Sue Boyd
