Updated Manchester Agreements

UNITE and company representatives have been working together to review the various Manchester agreements (Framework, Recognition, Annex 1, Annex 2, Annex 3, Annex 4 and Annex 5). Though the review didn’t end up dealing with all the issues that the company or the union would have liked to address, it has produced a “firm offer” from the company for a new set of agreements.
We have published the offer on CafeVIK. You need the password “draftonly” (no quotes) to open most of the files. Please take the time to read the README file, which explains the context and summarises the main changes.
Your reps see the changes as further improvements on our existing agreements, most of which were secured in September 2007 at the end of our dispute.
If you have any questions about the offer, please speak to one of your reps.
