VLO JE Outcome: UNISON Actions

E 33 – 2023

Dear Colleagues

UNISON is aware that the announcement on Wednesday this week of a pay band 3 outcome to the recent VLO JE panel will have come as a major disappointment to our VLO members and we know that this has caused huge upset. None of the unions was notified of the JE outcome prior to its publication to the workforce.

In response to the announcement, UNISON will be:

  1. Discussing our approach to the JE outcome with our sister trade unions when we meet at our regular catch up next week
  1. Attending the meeting which Jim Barton has called for VLOs on Friday 1 September next week
  1. Preparing to assist and support UNISON VLO members to appeal the JE outcome.

Further information will be sent out following the meetings next week. Please cascade this message to all VLO members.

This e-mail has been sent to all branches with probation members and UNISON’s probation committee.
