NCC Pay, Terms and Conditions Proposals

branch-squareThank you to those members who attended the consultation meetings that recently took place. I am pleased to say that there is overwhelming support from members of all three unions to continue to oppose the council proposals.

Please find attached copy of a letter that the trade unions sent to elected members yesterday.

We will also be writing to local MP's.  We will be organising further consultation meetings in the next few weeks as it was clear that many members did not fully understand the implications of the council's proposals.

Please do your best to attend a meeting or contact your local rep or the Branch if you would like clarification on any of the issues.

Thank you.

Christina Sanna
Branch Secretary
