To do that, we need a fully informed and involved membership supporting us and making decisions as things progress. You can expect to be hearing from UNISON on a regular basis as we receive information/proposals. Be involved. Be heard. Be strong. Join the fight with...

HR/Payroll System

Posted by on Jun 2, 2015 in News | 0 comments

Colleagues We have been advised that a report is going to the Council’s P&R committee on Thursday for consideration relating to the above. As UNISON has not been consulted on the content of the report by the Council, we have asked that it is withdrawn from the agenda until we have had a chance to discuss any issues with our members. As things stand (3pm 2nd June), we have not had a response to this request.

This will allow us to ensure that we don’t miss any members on consultations going forward. Contact can be made on either 01698 276291 or via branchoffice@unisonnorthlan.org.uk . Thank you. John...
