One of the gains from the negotiations during our dispute has been the establishment of a framework for union reps and officers to meet a group of managers on a monthly basis to keep an overview of issues affecting staff in the north-west.
Minutes are agreed at the following meeting, so there does tend to be a bit of a time-lag before publication on CafeVIK. This has been exacerbated by the (sensible) cancellation of some meetings to give priority to resolving the dispute.
As a result, the last published minutes were from February. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 21st June, after which the April minutes should be published. If you have items for the agenda, please let us know as soon as possible.
