GMB Leads the Way for Security at the 2012 London Olympics
With the forthcoming Olympics only six years away the GMB has raised the first issues concerning Security. The GMB has a presence on various planning groups involved with the project and has had the foresight to present our worries concerning the Security Industry planning of the event.
We are also in discussion with the major companies concerning both the manning and pre event Security.
One of the GMB's major concerns is that of the amount of women involved in the Industry. Given the minimal amount of women presently working within the Industry the GMB have begun an initiative to raise these levels.
Jan Thomas, the Southern Regional Officer responsible for Security is working with the Senior Management of the GMB to ensure that the Industry is capable of responding to the Olympic needs within London and the South in 2012.
" Martin Smith from the GMB National organisation team said today that GMB were ready to meet the challenge of developing support structures to support those GMB members who were to be employed in the security, entertainment and hospitality sectors for the 20/12 Olympics"
