Thank you to Wienerberger who signed the charter on 6th March 2019 providing protection for their 1,200 employees.
Human Resources Director, Carole Goodwin, said:
“We had no hesitation in signing up to this Charter as this strengthens our commitment to what we already do. It is extremely important that as an organisation we do the right thing, more so to those who are terminally ill. Our staff and their families should feel supported not pressured and Wienerberger will do everything possible to ensure we support individuals and their family at their greatest time of need.”
National Officer, Steve Kemp, also commented:
"GMB are extremely grateful to Wienerberger for signing up to the important campaign ' Dying to Work ' and signing the charter. This shows that when trade unions and employers work together on issues as important as when people are suffering with terminal illness, then together we can make a difference to peoples’ lives. On this issue Wienerberger have been totally supportive which is nothing short of exemplary and it is of great credit to the company itself. In turn we hope other employers would do the same and take the same stance and leadership of Wienerberger in supporting this crucial issue.”
