PROGRESS REPORT 11th JUNE 2019
Goodness me you’re a funny lot!
We have 1000 who are upset they won’t get offers until at least July. in addition there’s The people at Cali Uni who have no idea when they will get offers at all.
There are folk messaging every day “when am I getting paid, when am I getting paid”.
But there are over 1000 people who’ve had their offers and their packs but haven’t got round to returning them to their reps. And no they are not just the 5 years people or even the moaning men. Hundreds of them are folk with large offers but no responses. That’s even more patient than me! Come on folks what are you waiting for?
In the meantime here’s a breakdown of the process so far.
A4ES had about 8000 offers to distribute, we’ve had about 7200 which we’ve sent to the solicitors and almost all of them will be sent to council by today.
So far the council has rejected about 70 almost all due to a problem with the bank mandate (mostly incorrect sort code or account numbers). 1% is actually very low and we are very pleased.
Thompson’s for GMB and Unite had 2100 ish offers to distribute. They’ve returned about 1600 to the council. We don’t yet know how many the council have rejected.
Morton Fraser for UNISON had about 4000 offers to send. They also managed to get these out faster than anyone else. They have returned about 1600 to the council. Again we don’t know how many have been accepted or rejected yet.
Unfortunately the council is not as fast as we are so they’ve only processed about 25% of the offers returned.
It’s important to understand that there are many checking stages and processes to go through, and the sheer volume of forms and documents to check. It all takes time. It’s not simply you posting back your forms and then you getting paid.
The time limit for payment is 28 days from council accepting forms are correct. And then in first come first paid order. And it’s a process, not one Big Bang payment day.
We will not know when you will get paid until a couple of days beforehand and it will be on the app if you’re with A4ES. I don’t think the others will let you know at all.
DO NOT RING OR EMAIL ASKING “WHEN WILL I BE PAID?” it’s a waste of time and resources. Just wait your turn. It will start at the end of the month and keep on going into the following weeks and months.
In the meantime- if you’ve had your offer then please return the documents as soon as you can.
