About Us-GMB R45 Rhondda Cynon Taff Branch



The branch was formed in 1996 when the Rhondda, Cynon and Taff Borough Councils and part of Mid Glamorgan County Council, merged to create Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council.

With all the councils above having GMB Branches covering them, they were all merged to create the R45 Rhondda Cynon Taff branch.  This branch became the biggest branch within the South Western Region representing 3,500 members.  The branch also covers companies that work with the council including:
