Housing update....................

Some big changes in Housing ahead with Benefits returning to what is now Resources and Housing Needs and Resources and Housing Policy becoming part of Planning Housing and Regeneration. You should all have been told about these proposals by now, if not please contact your manager.

Why they didn’t do this four years ago when the greater part of Housing was transferred to Barnet Homes I don’t know.

At this time, UNISON still have no details of the proposed restructure of Housing Needs and Resources due to take place later in the year and are waiting for these. As soon as we receive them we will discuss them with you.

As we do in almost all parts of the council, we need more stewards, particularly as, with the rest of Benefits, I will be part of Resources from April and therefore will no longer be the Assistant Branch Secretary for Housing. However this is unlikely to result in any reduction in my union activities as (if elected) I will become the Assistant Branch Secretary for Resources instead, a much larger area. If you are interested in becoming a steward, please contact me or John Burgess the Branch Secretary. You will receive full support and training.
