Following a review of the School Uniform Grant programme, it would appear that the number of applications is down on the same period last year.

In order to enable members to apply for the grant and ensure that those who would benefit from it still have an opportunity to apply, we have taken the decision to extend the closing date of the programme from Friday 20 July, to Friday 3 August.

We believe there are many members who would qualify for the assistance which has been increased from £40 to £50 per child (maximum of £150 for 3 children) per application.

The Dudley LG Branch AGM was on 13th April 2018. The elections for the Branch Secretary positions had been suspended because of a complaint received by the Regional Office in regards to the election process and so no branch secretaries were elected at the AGM.

The investigation into the complaint is still on-going. I understand that this is frustrating for members and representatives. I am expecting a conclusion to the complaint in the next few weeks, after which the Branch will be able to move forward in electing branch secretaries. Thank you for bearing with the Branch and the Region at this time.

2018 and 2019 PAYSCALES & ALLOWANCES Agreement has been reached between the National Employers and the NJC Trade Union Side on rates of pay applicable from 1 April 2018 and 1 April 2019. UNISON and GMB both voted to accept whilst Unite voted to reject. However, in line with the Constitution of the NJC, Unite accepts the collective majority decision of the other unions that the pay award should now be implemented.

Please see attached circular for new pay rates.
