It has been brought to the branches attention that there is a misleading email circulating around school catering staff which has been sent out by a sister trade union. We understand that the email is stating that there is to be job losses in all schools as a result of a piece of work being carried out by consultants.
The unions were made aware of a pilot that was about to be run over 4 schools within Fife, there had been no consultation with the unions on this. As a result, UNISON Fife’s branch secretary put an immediate stop to this pilot beginning until such times as all trade unions had been fully briefed.
At this point in time there are no cuts to jobs or to contracts and we wanted to assure UNISON members that we will make sure that work to protect our members jobs and the services they provide.
Times are anxious enough without misleading information being given out. Please contact the branch on 01592 583686 if you would like to discuss.
