The agreement means Wilson James has granted GMB full recognition for representation, consultation and collective bargaining for its security staff at the auction house.

Paul Meddes, GMB Regional Organiser said:
“We are pleased to announce that we have signed a new working partnership agreement with Wilson James which will cover our members at a large auction house in Central London.
“This is on the back of the hard work we entered into with Wilson James last year, which lead to the union signing a working partnership agreement at a major London museum which allows GMB to negotiate pay and conditions which is great for members at the museum.
“We believe that the working relationship with Wilson James will continue to grow allowing the union to negotiate pay and conditions for our members. We are happy that our partnership agreement allows us as a trade union to work with recognised company within the security industry.”
