Dispute Update 21 Sept 2007
Talks bring some movement
but still no guarantees on redundancies.
A series of talks with the council have led to
some progress, however there are still serious concerns about
processes where compulsory redundancies can be avoided.
While communication and consultation has improved,
UNISON has serious concerns about how the council intends to avoid
compulsory redundancies through redeployment and voluntary measures.
A detailed bulletin on the talks so far is being
prepared and will go out to members in the next few days.
