The Manchester Dispute Is Over

Manchester members accepted the company offer by a massive 99.6% majority, on an 89.2% turnout. The deal took effect yesterday and the company has now issued an email notice to all those in scope, i.e.:
a) Contractually based at Central Park, or
b) Contractually based at home, and living within 30 miles of Central Park, or
c) Contractually based at home and requested inclusion on the supplementary list agreed between the Company and the Union.
The new agreements are available in full on the “Amicus The Union” Café VIK community.
A big thank you to everyone who voted.
A jointly agreed statement about the settlement is being issued to the media. A version of this statement is available on the OurUnion web site.
Over the next week, the company will send a paper version of the announcement of the deal to employees’ home addresses. We strongly advise you to keep this in a safe place, as it is evidence of the changes to your contract of employment.
