The Manufacturing Section of the GMB was formed in 2007 incorporating the previous Clothing, Textile and Allied Trades Section (CTFA), the Engineering and Process Sections which also includes food manufacturing. The section presently covers over 11,800 members within the Wales & South West Region combining with over 115,000 GMB members nationally.
Bargaining, advice, and representation for members is provided through a structure of workplace organisers, supported by a network of branches and full time Officials of the GMB at both regional and national level.
The section also campaigns on the issues that are of concern to our members, examples of campaigning work carried out in the section recently are:
- Safety Standards in relation to removal of Asbestos and the National awareness of the Mesothelioma disease
- Safety standards in the Construction Industry
