As you are aware UNISON has been consulting with you over the employer’s proposal to harmonise terms and conditions.
Consultation closed at the end of the day on Friday 22 November.
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 was not in a position to engage in further discussions with the employer until after our consultation had concluded. However, the employer took this opportunity to undermine the consultation process by issuing formal notification with intent to disengage and re-engage contracts. The employer had sought to further undermine our consultation process by seeking voluntary acceptance of the new contracts without knowing what UNISON’s formal response was going to be.
UNISON is very disappointed that the employer chose to take this action knowing that UNISON had not finished consulting with our members at that time thereby undermining the whole negotiation.
UNISON will be holding further meetings for our members and these are:
Thursday 12 December 1.30 – 3.00 pm
Wednesday 18 December 2.00 – 3.30 pm
Thursday 19 December 1.00 – 2.30 pm
All of the meetings will be held in the Council Chamber of the Council House, Corporation Street, Derby. No need to book your place, just come along.
