Displays of Office Environmental Issues at MAN33 and MAN34

To: Employees in the UNITE Manchester Bargaining Unit
In line with employee feedback to the recent union Move Survey asking for peoples’ views on their working environment, UNITE Health & Safety Reps recently toured MAN33 and MAN34 to seek opinions from residents on the two most prominent issues highlighted by the survey

  1. Temperature & Air Conditioning, and
  2. Lighting & Blinds

The adopted method was to invite people to place a green or a red dot on to a floor diagram at their desk position, and to comment further to us on any (red dot) concerns.
We are now inviting staff to view the resulting diagrams, now colour-coded to highlight problem areas. We will be displaying these in both the MAN33 and MAN34 restaurants on Thursday 27th September between 12:00 and 14:00. This will also be an opportunity for anyone ‘missed’ previously to add in their dots and have their say. We’re also keen to capture similar feedback concerning ‘public’ areas such as meeting rooms.
Following this session, we will write to the company with the results of the survey.
We believe that involving employees in order to pursue these issues collectively offers the best chance of getting them resolved. If you would like to help with issues in your work area please get in touch with us by replying to this email.
