GMBThe GMB Trade Union is a campaigning trade union focused on protecting, representing and solving problems for GMB members in their workplaces. The GMB is Britain’s general union which means anyone can join and has over 600,000 members working in every part of the UK economy

Using TMC’s technology the trade union has moved away from costly and time-consuming paper-based mailings to fast, efficient and cost-effective SMS communication, ensuring members receive the latest trade union information instantly, easily and direct to their mobile phone.


“Prior to implementing the web-based text messaging solution from TMC, we were contacting our members via mail to update them on any changes to a particular campaign, a specific pay offer or changes in workplace regulations. A regular mailing would cost £850 to send individual letters via second class post minus additional stationery and printing costs. Selecting the TMC solution will save us £675 on the cost of stamps alone – add that up over the whole year and the savings amount into the thousands.”
