The Branch and other unions have had further meetings with Dudley MBC regarding the proposals on changes to terms and conditions as part of the budget process.
 
Meetings are still ongoing discussing potential proposals. However, we are in a position to clarify some questions that have been raised.
 
  • Any proposal to introduce mandatory unpaid leave will not affect school based term-time only staff.
  • Any proposals put forward are in relation to Dudley MBC staff. Academies are separate employers.
  • Part-time workers would be affected by any changes pro rata.
 
We would also stress that the situation is still that UNISON has not agreed to any proposals that are currently being discussed.

UNISON and the other recognised unions met with the employer on Friday 18th November 2016 to discuss the proposed changes in terms and conditions.

UNISON has not agreed to any of the proposed changes. We have also asked for clarification on how the proposed five days unpaid leave would affect certain groups of staff, in particular 7 day workers and term-time only workers. We have also requested to see equality impact assessments in relation to how these proposed changes may impact on certain groups.

Further meetings are scheduled to discuss other potential alternatives.

We will keep you informed of any further developments.
