G4S no-strike agreement with the GMB trade union.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

In a FOI reply to Mr John Moloney on 2 October 2019 (Ref: FOI2019/35076), the DWP noted: “We can confirm that G4S has informed DWP that it has a no-strike agreement with the GMB. The no-strike agreement is the G4S Security Services UK national recognition agreement with the GMB.”

Is this no-strike agreement is still in place? If not, does the DWP know when it ended?

Thank you for your time.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Smith

MR ALEX A SMITH

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I understand that your response to my request has been delayed.

I would like to request an acknowledgment that my request will be dealt with as soon as is practically possible.

I would also like to request that the below message be passed on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of the DWP’s handling of my FOI request 'G4S no-strike agreement with the GMB trade union.'

In its initial reply to my request, the DWP stated that it aimed to deal with my request within 20 days. This amount of days has now passed, but my request has not yet been dealt with. Could I please request an update?

Yours faithfully,
