Hello, you seem to be off line. I will remain on line for a while to see if you are able to help.
Sorry for the delay. I have looked into your query but do not think I have the answer to your question so will opt out and let other experts take this further if they can. Someone should respond shortly. Please do not reply in the meantime as that will just assign the question back to me and you will experience a delay. Thanks
Hello, yes, unfortunately the first expert could not answer my questions so I would be grateful if you were able to help please, many thanks
1% has been offered but Unison are balloting members on whether or not to take strike action, (although I have to establish whether striking applies to me or not given that technically I now work for a private company) thank you
Unison are balloting all members nationwide because they are members of the union, not due to where they work. I and others think our award is being done separately by our private company or at least that’s how it seems.
Not officially, we only found out that our original pay award offer had been retracted on Friday and substituted with a lower one. The questions are:
- Are pay awards decided upon by my new employers (private company) even when the employee is ex LGA with LGA T&Cs i.e. should the LGA national pay award be applied (currently 1% but under negotiation with trade unions).- Since no review nor consultation have taken place do I have any recourse against my employer for agreeing one pay award in writing then without explanation lowering this a month later which incidentally is after the award has started on 1st April (but not paid).For additional information I am aware that other staff have had different levels of initial pay awards, no pay award and second; reduced pay awards.
