The Employers’ Side of the NJC met on 1 April to discuss the proposal by the three unions for a one-year deal and agreed timetables for implementation of the reviews of term-time working and the pay spine.
In response, they said that they are not prepared to make a one-year offer and have only offered a Joint Secretaries meeting to establish a timetable for the reviews. The Employers ’letter is attached.
UNISON’s NJC Committee met yesterday to consider the Employers’ response. After a lengthy discussion, the Committee voted to continue to pursue the option of taking industrial action later this year.
UNISON’s Industrial Action Committee will consider the Committee’s request for a ballot for all-out strike action on 13 April
