What’s going on in Barnet UNISON Branch Part One ?

Pay Award

When are we going to get paid?
I believe that the Council is currently trying to ensure the back pay and the new rate of pay is in this months pay packet!

Council budget settlement

No news yet but word on the corridors is that it could be one of the worst yet…..we will notify/ consult with members as soon as we are formally consulted. In terms of timescales we should hear before the Full Council meeting on 18 December 2007.

Just in case it is bad news make sure you hear the news direct from our employers by attending the Council meeting on 18 December 2007.

Human Resources
You may have noticed over the last year a lot of change in relation to who you need to speak to in Human Resources. This is because of the restructure which must be one of the longest restructures I have ever experienced. It has clearly had an impact on staff morale. We are coming to the final part of the restructure and hope sometime early 2008 the new look HR service will be in place.

What’s happening in Burnt Oak????

As we all know the Council is moving the majority of it’s office staff into the NLBP complex. However it has always been recognised the need for services in the west of the borough.

Burnt Oak Library is to be revamped and will provide a host of services to the public. UNISON is involved in the consultation and will ensure that our members working in the area are fully involved in the process, the lead UNISON officer for this piece of work will be Tracey Lowe. If you are UNISON member and you have heard you may be working over there and have questions please ring the UNISON office on 0208 359 2088/2083 or email contactus@barnetunison.org.uk
