If you are an Early Years Worker who has been employed on temporary contracts for 4 years or more with NLC, and are a member of UNISON, we need to hear from you.

Despite our position during negotiations NLC are insisting that you need to go through the interview process in relation to the new jobs that have been created to meet the demand of the new 600hr provision, but we believe that you are legally entitled to more. Due to data protection we are having a difficulty in identifying the 40 employees affected and our membership system does not hold employment status so we cannot differentiate between full time workers and temporary workers.

We want to lodge a group grievance to protect your legal rights to employment and remove any threat of failing in an interview process you do not need to be subject to, but without your involvement we cannot do this.

Please contact the branch office on 01698 276291 asap where the branch staff will take your details and pass them on to Jan McKay and Marie Boyle who are dealing with the issue.

Can you spread the word to ensure that we reach everyone involved.

John Mooney
