What could Unitary Status mean for our branch?

Unitary Status for greater Norwich will have a big impact on our branch.

Many UNISON members will transfer from Norfolk County Council and neighbouring district councils and there will be other unions such as Unite, GMB, and NUT recognised at the authority.

The main considerations for our members will be the new staffing structure, and transferring the majority of staff to the new authority under TUPE regulations.

The branch will be involved at the very start with any consultation and will work hard with the Employer to enable as smooth a transition as possible.  We will keep all our members updated.
