Guinness Staff Union Delegates to attend DEF

The DEF held in London 2016

The GSU Executive Committee has nominated three delegates to attend this years Diageo European Forum ( DEF) which will be held in Edinburgh from the 5th to the 7th November.

The DEF is a consultative forum established under the rules of the European Works Councils which is a European directive that  aims to improve the consultative process in transnational  European Companies

In the past the GSU has raised issues like Family friendly policies, Bonus and pension benefits as well as  dignity at work and work related stress.

Not all of the markets represented at the Forum have trade Union representation . The GSU takes its responsibility as a member of the DEF very seriously and all GSU members are entitled to bring forward  issues that they believe should be raised at this forum.  Local and National issues are generally not raised but issues that affect members on a transnational basis are allowed. The GSU in conjunction with our colleagues in other Markets have jointly raised issues that effect staff on  a transnational basis in the past and will be doing so at this years forum.

If a member has an issue that they think should be raised at the DEF send an email to the GSU at: john.dunne@guinnessstaffunion.com
