Manchester Workplaces Delegation Report

At North Manchester Hospital we left leaflets with some administrator who shares the office space with the Unions. She said she would copy the leaflets and collection forms and send them to all the union reps.
Rolls Royce was interesting we actually found the GMB rep first. He was very supportive and took materials. He was going to send leaflets and collections forms to his branch and hawk the things round his people. He did say he had already sent a cheque in. He went off and found the AMICUS rep, who we also talked to.
Queens Road bus depot has a busy union office and a number of notice boards. He took leaflets and was going to put up the collection sheets and leaflets. The T&G are actually going to ACAS on the 28th Feb so he was very supportive though very busy.
