A4ES ISSUES NEARLY 3000 NEW CLAIMS VS CORDIA
As folk who’ve been following my posts and the A4ES videos will know a new issue arose with GCC and CORDIA over holiday pay. The council disputed that there was a valid holiday pay claim but suddenly announced it was making a one off, un agreed, payment which it claimed was Back holiday money.Read More
In a nutshell this appears to be because UNISON think Robert Andersons promises were good enough. This is entirely a union matter and something they had every right to do. But as they chose not to consider discussing it in the claimant group I’m entitled to express my opinion, and I don’t think it’s helpful. I think they’ve jumped the gun.Read More
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.
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.
