Jo refers to the majority of staff in terms of them being sympathetic to DMBC's plight of spending cuts. Whilst this may be true, how many staff were harassed, bullied and threatened into signing the variations to contract? We would like to hear from members willing to speak to our solicitors if they feel this was the case!
It appears that DMBC do not wish to enter further negotiations with the Trade Unions as we requested in our letter. We believe this position will change when potentially 1300 legal claims are lodged by Trade Union members. UNISON will always try to protect and fight for all its members.
