the city's most effective trade union

In my view…

UNISON Branch members who work for Manchester City Council supported the m people proposals by a ratio of over three to one. The turnout in the ballot was 26% of which 78% of members voted in favour and 22% against.

This is a clear endorsement of the outcome of the complex and detailed negotiations carried out in recent months. We now have a framework to work with the Council to seek to respond quickly to changing service needs and developments whilst aiming to continue to avoid compulsory redundancies and any reduction in protection arrangements.

The Branch will work with representatives and groups of members in all services to do the hard part and make the m people processes work for our members in terms of their job security and, equally importantly, delivering Council services for the people of Manchester as well as we possibly can.

While there has been regional and national interest in the m people agreement, the Branch priority is to ensure that we can work with Manchester Council on jointly delivering our aims.

Information will be made available and briefing sessions will be arranged for all Council stewards on the detailed processes which we are now developing further.

Pat McDonagh (Branch Secretary)
