FOR INTERNAL STAFF ONLY
THE next stage in the implementation of Single Status is about to begin.
Around 90% of all staff have accepted the Council's Single Status offer following the letters sent to staff in August.
However, around 1,100 members of staff have either rejected, or not responded to, the Single Status package.
This means that a formal 45-day consultation period will be held with trade unions to try to reach agreement on the Single Status package and avoid the need to dismiss and re-engage those employees who have not accepted the offer.
The 45-day consultation period will begin on October 24, 2013. The consultation will be for a minimum period of 45 days which will take us to December 7, 2013 - should agreement not be reached in the meantime.
The Council is aiming to implement Single Status on April 1, 2014.
Any member of staff who has not returned an acceptance form can do so at any time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the acceptance form.
A copy of the letter issued to trade unions can be found as a download on the right hand side of the page.
