Emily Wilding Davison started this petition to GMB Central Executive Committee

The GMB Trade Union proclaims to seek out and challenge injustice and inequality, yet the union has been found to be institutionally sexist. The General Secretaries and all regional
secretaries are, and always have been, men. Women are underrepresented
throughout the GMB’s ranks.

It is time the union reflected it's membership and equality was balanced throughout the hierarchy, from the top down. The CEC should now agree and implement a women only shortlist and begin the process of affording capable and experienced women their rightful place at the table.

This measure must be taken to change a culture, rise up and join us now!
