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.
We were pleased the council seemed to take things seriously. They brought along 2 extra folk from finance to hear our presentation and ask questions. More importantly there was no immediate hostile reaction and the council agreed to respond by 14th May in a considered and professional way. We can only hope this approach continues and we can finally engage in meaningful discussions.
On the imposition of a dodgy interim payment there was again a marked change of tack and mood. They told us that they had met with the political group and they had been instructed to make a formal offer which they understood we were likely to reject and then the politicians would reconsider.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’.
So This is the query from The Times : Dear Stefan, I wonder if you can help me? We are looking to publish an article exploring the consequences of your recent victory on equal pay in Glasgow. It has been suggested that the total cost of righting this historical wrong will be in excess of £500 millionRead More
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.
