News ItemFriday Round up

Firstly, I want to thank you all for all the support that you have given me over the last 21 months and I shall miss you all.

We are acutely aware of the impact the current crisis in Children's Services is having on hardworking dedicated staff in that department and across the Council. We have offered to work with Senior Managers and Councillors to share the expertise of UNISON and our members in turning this service round. Next week Kev, Lorna & Andy are meeting with UNISON National Officers, to look at how we can best represent our members in Children's Services. Many of our existing and new members in Children's Services are contacting us, sharing their experiences, concerns and ideas. We are eager to hear your experience. Please do feel free to contact the Branch on 01604 670400 or admin@northantsunison.co.uk if you would like to share your stories.

We had our yearly Ďaudití by the Region called JABO (Joint Assessment of Branch Organisation) on Tuesday. It was lovely to work on this with Kev and I think we came out of this quite well. Kev should get the results before Christmas.

Wednesday saw another atrium address. We do welcome the Christmas Eve day off, which was raised by Unison alongside a staff member, and we do recognise that not all teams will be allowed that day off. They will be hopefully allowed another day over the festive period.

The Branch is also campaigning for Staff not to lose a days pay when they are poorly. It is unreasonable to expect Staff to work when they are ill because they canít afford not. Donít forget that if you have a recognised medical condition or disability then please let your manager know as you can then be paid from the first day.

Wednesday also saw the CCNF meeting where all the unions meet with senior officers and elected members. Kev raised lots of issues on behalf of Staff and Iím sure he will update you next week.

Thursday, we held a stall to promote UNISONís There For You Charity which can help members in a time of crisis.

Happy Christmas Everyone and a Happy New Year!
Penny
