GMB is recognised in a number of trade unions and political bodies throughout the UK and most of these employers have their own branch structure within the London Region. As a consequence, all members are, by and large, members of the London Region irrespective of where they live or work.

For instance, if you're a member of GMB in our branch at the RCN, but live and work in Manchester, you will still pay your subscriptions to the London Region. 

We have recognition with the following TUPS employers:

ATL BMA and BMJ CWU NUJ Labour Party
MU PCS Prospect RCN RMT
SCP SoR TSSA TUC UNITE
ASLEF BALPA BECTU The Green Party TSSA

Should we not have recognition with your employer, you can still join the GMB and you will be allocated to a geographical branch in the London Region.

Our conveners and key branch activists from these employers meet on a quarterly basis at our national office at Euston to discuss issues of common interest and share best practice. The meetings are co-ordinated by the 3 London full-time officers with responsibility for TUPS employers, currently: Anna Meyer and Helen Purcell. These officers are all based at the regional office in Hendon so please do get in contact should you have any queries or wish to attend one of these quarterly meetings.
