As you are aware UNISON Derby City Branch has been consulting with you over the employer’s proposal to harmonise terms and conditions. Consultation does not close until the end of the day on Friday 22 November. If you have not already returned your consultation form then you can either forward it to the branch office (UNISON Derby City, Middleton House, 27 St Mary’s Gate, Derby, DE1 3NN) or email your response to firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNISON is aware that the employer has issued a statement with their intent to consult with regard to the imposition of the harmonisation of terms and conditions. UNISON is not in a position to engage with further discussions with the employer until after our consultation has concluded, however, the employer has taken this opportunity to undermine the consultation process by issuing formal notification with intent to disengage and re-engage contracts. The employer has sought to further undermine our consultation process by seeking voluntary acceptance of the new contracts without knowing what UNISON’s formal response is going to be.
UNISON is very disappointed that the employer has chosen to take this action knowing that UNISON had not finished consulting with our members and thereby undermining the whole negotiation.
UNISON will be holding further meetings for our members and these are currently being finalised and we will add details to the website as soon as these are confirmed.
