We are pleased to confirm that following extensive partnership work supported by ACAS, UNISON and the Trust have agreed a new trade union recognition agreement which you can read here.

There are a range of supporting documents yet to be developed as appendices to the agreement.  Further meeting dates have been agreed in the New Year facilitated by ACAS to jointly develop these documents to further support positive partnership working.  These include trade union facilities, consultation and negotiation framework and a disputes resolution procedure.
