Negotiations re-opened

The National Joint Council (NJC) re-opened negotiations yesterday afternoon, a day early according to the previous timetable.

The meeting largely focussed on timetable and process. The need for early progress in the negotiations was emphasised by UNISON and UNITE.  Further meetings are planned for 22 August and the following week. In the meantime, a meeting of the UNISON and Trade Union Sides of the NJC Executive is being planned for next week.

Further updates will be posted as and when received.
