UNISON believes members who would lose under Single Status are justified in being both angry and upset.
We would add that we are also aware that these losers encompass both manual and 'white-collar ' staff.
However there is a website which is currently focusing on those justified concerns , but which through its representation of rumour as fact is creating greater anger and upset.
UNISON is then being criticised on the basis of these 'facts'.
so lets be clear : This UNISON branch represents all its members . The claim that this is a 'deal ' which favours manual workers is abject nonsense.
Many manual workers lose as much if not more than some 'white-collar' workers.
Yes many low paid women are eligible for significant amounts of backpay , but this is their legal right under equal pay legislation irrespective of any single status agreement.
UNISON has no interest in promoting a YES vote nor are we 'hand-in-glove' with the Employer
UNISOn could never recommend a deal which resulted in 21% of its members losing , indeed it would be difficult to envisage recommending any deal which involved losers.
