Salary Swap Workshops (Manchester)

The confusion, poor communication and unrealistic deadlines imposed by the company are leading your reps to be deluged with queries about the new Salary Swap scheme.
UNITE is organising a series of short workshops where reps will give a brief explanation of the scheme, the issues and the UNITE advice – and you can ask questions.
Friday 25th January

· 10:00 – 10:30 or
· 10:45 – 11:15 or
· 11:30 – 12:00

There is a lot to cover, so please be on time.
These are open to all employees, whether currently members or not. Please let your colleagues know about them.
You should check with your manager that you can be released to attend.
Sadly, the corporate position is that the preferred route for employee enquiries is to HRdirect rather than UNITE, so they are not generally instructing managers to allow time off to attend.
Please remember that Friday is the company deadline for you to act if you wish to avoid them automatically enrolling you into salary swap.
It is particularly sad that the company is not being more supportive of the workshops when the HRdirect home page talks about a 5-day backlog of email queries, when some of the FAQs have still not been uploaded, and employees only have one day to make vital decisions about their future.
