From time to time, even after extensive negotiation on our behalf, some employers do not meet the standard we expect. The live disputes below mean our members face a detriment in conditions of service compared to other professional colleagues in the County.
As a result, we strongly advise you to contact us before starting a post at these institutions.
HEART Trust, Norwich. 15 January 2018 – Use of a Non-Agreed Policy
The Trust have said they will not ‘freeze’ the use of termination whilst we negotiate as stipulated under Burgundy Book;
No action to implement decisions relating to the dispute until the conciliation procedures set out below had been fully utilised.
We are obviously disappointed with this and will urge the Trust to comply with conciliation expectations. If they do not, we will have to escalate to a ballot for Action
As a result, we will be contacting all Norfolk members to make them aware of the use of a non-agreed policy and ask them to contact us before looking to work in a HEART school
