Public Services Section
Headed by Martin Hird, Senior Organiser
The Public Services Section is for members of the union who are employed in local authorities, schools, the NHS, further and higher education, passenger transport and voluntary organisations. There are over 322,000 members in the Public Services Section which is 47% of the union's membership. In the Wales & South West Region, GMB is a major presence in every local authority area - we represent thousands of workers in the whole range of council roles.
In the NHS, GMB prides itself on having local organisers in touch and involved with health service membership in Trusts and Local Health Boards across the region. We represent all grades of staff from nurses to admin, ambulance personnel, technical staff, cleaning, catering and many others. Our representatives are leading the way in providing advice and support on the implementation of Agenda for Change.
