Staff Consultation

Members affected by the draft savings proposals have been briefed by management. The Unison Branch Committee has also been briefed on the principals of the proposals, and stewards in affected areas have been given a more in depth briefing on individual proposals.

We would like to reassure members that your Unison branch is here to support you during this difficult period.  Unison representatives have attended staff briefings and the Branch Committee will hold special meetings as and when necessary to discuss the issues raised at those briefings and any other problems or ideas that may come from you, our members.

Management will be speaking to all affected members over the next week or so in individual meetings about what the proposals mean to you and the options that you have in the future.  Unison stewards are available to discuss your concerns and, if you wish, provide representation at those meetings.

The list of stewards is available by clicking here.

The branch is also being consulted on the proposals and we have the opportunity to develop and submit alternative proposals. We would therefore like to hear any ideas or suggestions that members have that could form part of our response.

If you would like to make a suggestion for an alternative proposal or comment on the consultation please e-mail or contact the branch office.
