Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to complete our survey on the proposals by Angus Council and ANGUSAlive to change some of your terms and conditions. We've now emailed you the results which clearly reflect our members dissatisfaction with every proposal put forward.
This morning we met with Angus Council senior managers and shared these results with them, along with a number of anonymous comments on the proposals which stated quite clearly what many of you think about the detrimental impact these proposals will have on your terms and conditions. Having discussed the issue, UNISON Angus, along with GMB, consider the survey of members and sharing of results with the employers as being part of the 'collective bargaining' arrangements that exist between us and we now await further information from the Council and ANGUSAlive with regards to their intentions about the proposals. As soon as we know what that is, we will be back in touch with you all.
Some of you will have today read that following last night's Dundee City Council Policy & Resources Committee, your fellow members in Dundee City Branch have been the subject of a direct attack on their terms and conditions without any consultation from the employer at all. We are in solidarity with each and every one of them in standing up in opposition to what has happened. We will work hard to fend off the proposed changes to terms and conditions in Angus - changes that will directly impact on you - and we know from your responses to the survey that our members will stand up in opposition to the proposals too should that need arise. We are all 'the union' and everything we do collectively can make a difference.
We'll keep you posted.
