Strange events this week. As you know the claimant group consists of A4ES UNISON and GMB. It does not include UNITE. indeed unite has virtually no involvement in the claims at all. They have very few claims at all, and even those tiny number of claims they basically passed to solicitors and ignored them. They have not attended any of the tribunals, just travelling on the coat tails of whoever Thompsons solicitors were representing at the time.Read More
As you probably know UNISON and soon GMB will be conducting consultative ballots on possible strike action or action short of a strike.
These are NOT strike ballots. They are to test the level of support for such action. Whenever I post on here folk jump in and call for a strike. Do they speak for the majority or are the lone but load voices? This is how we find out.Read More
Meeting 10 with the council was a much more positive affair than the last few meetings. It seems that the first signs of spring have managed to thaw the chilly attitude of the officers, at least a little. For once we didn’t spend 2 hours on the minutes.
The council agreed that there were only 2 items. Our proposal to resolve matters and their threatened imposition of an interim payment.Read More
spite asking us to keep matters confidential the councils own chief exec has written to folk claiming that “proposals” have been made for an interim payment. This is not true, at least not using my definition of a proposal (an idea for discussion). She also said that the claimant group had rejected the idea of an interim payment. That is trueRead More
Many of you will have received a letter from Cordia last week telling you that they had reached agreement to make a back dated payment of 8.3 % for holiday pay for 2017 only. I promised to check this with the unions and the council.
So we’ve had meeting 7 with the council. So far not a single thing has been agreed. There have been no “negotiations” on substantive issues. The council has insisted that we need to agree ‘the process’ first. They have even appointed a project manager to handle ‘the process’.
I want to say a personal big Thank You for what you did for us carers, for one, my Equal Pay set me up for life. I retired from the Care Home at 60, if it wasnt for you fighting for us my retirement would have been miserable in monatary terms. No one I know who went wih other firms got the amount we did, I did however make a massive mistake when it came to Pensionable Pay, I opted for no Pensionable Pay and lost out on thousands but hey ho nothing I could do about that I still got money that I've never seen in my life before. I wish you and your family a healthy happy life and THANK YOU again for fighting our corner and giving me a wonderful retirement.
