Branch Secretary :

St Mungos Broadway strike - talks at ACAS today

Adam Lambert, Nicky Marcus and Jon Hughes will be attending talks at ACAS with representatives from the executive team of St Mungo’s Broadway this morning.  They will update via twitter and updates will appear on this website.

Details of the strike plans are available on this website here

Our dispute is over:


· The imposition of new terms and conditions for new staff

· Failure to consult

· The removal of pay and job evaluation from collective bargaining

· The imposition of new policies and procedures for all staff including redundancy, sickness, capability & disciplinary without consultation or negotiation

· Breaches of the recognition agreement including failure to apply NJC pay scales and rates to all staff, failure to maintain the status quo whilst in dispute, failure to follow the disputes avoidance procedure, failure to negotiate with Unite over the fundamental terms and conditions of all staff

· Stated intention to significantly reduce the number of Unite representatives and their facility time



Unite calls for:


· No imposition of new terms and conditions

· Retention of agreed NJC scales and rates rather than a move to ‘market rates’

· Upward harmonisation to St Mungo’s rates for ex-Broadway and other TUPE transferred staff

· Adherence to last year’s agreement between regarding the introduction of support assistants and housing management assistants with no introduction of additional de-skilled roles

· Meaningful negotiation with Unite over job evaluation. Jobs to be re-evaluated only where there is an agreed significant change to responsibilities

· No changes to HR policies and procedures without prior negotiation with Unite

· Upholding the recognition agreement and rights including the number of representatives and facility time
