GMB Pub Revolution reps to meet new pubs minister

Representatives from the GMB Pub Revolution branch are to meet new pubs minister John Healey in Westminster on Tuesday.

The meeting, at 12.15pm, will come ahead of a meeting of up to 100 GMB parliamentary group members who will meet MPs to highlight their problems, and in particular to make a case for cutting cuts in wholesale beers prices of £12,000 for tied tenants.

The GMB lobby follows 20 open meetings for pubco tied tenants on the GMB Pub Revolution national road show over the past four weeks.

The aim of the tour was to attract the support of pubco tied tenants from all parts of Britain ahead of an official ballot for official industrial action to secure £12,000 cuts.

Potential action could include switching off the Brulines flow monitoring system and tenants buying their beer off tie.

No date for an official ballot has been set so far.
