AMOD has sent another missive to staff. Here:
Message from Annemarie O'Donnell, Chief Executive – equal pay negotiations update
You will recall in October that both the Leader and I intimated that as agreed in the negotiation timetable we wanted to be in a position to make individual settlement offers to claimants in December.
In the last six weeks both sides agree that our negotiations have been productive and we’ve made significant progress towards reaching a settlement. However, we need to have further talks on a couple of last remaining issues.
This is the most crucial phase of the process but as you will understand it also the most difficult and complex time and one that we must collectively work on to bring this situation to its conclusion.
It has therefore been decided by both sides that we will continue to work on these issues, with a view to finishing these talks in the early part of the New Year.
As always I will continue to provide updates as we have them.
In the meantime if you have any questions or suggestions please email me here.
Most of this is correct. Except. Isn’t there always an ‘except’. Except the suggestion there are only ‘a couple’ of last remaining issues.
Goodness I wish this were true (so do all of our bank managers)
Sadly there are rather more than 2 outstanding issues. I will point this out to them on Tuesday. If they let me, I’ll report back next week
