Branch Ballot on Single Status
Letter from Branch Secretary
ABERDEENSHIRE COUNCIL'S SINGLE STATUS PROPOSAL
You will recall from our last Single Status Update that UNISON
Aberdeenshire had intended to delay our ballot until November. This
was to allow more time for negotiations with the Council in the
light of the comments made by you in the consultation period.
These negotiations have now finished and the Council has made some
positive changes to aspects of the proposal relating to job mapping
and terms and conditions. [These were set out in the Council's recent
Single Status Newsletter to Employees]
It was also essential a full Equality Impact Assessment was completed
and that an Appeals Procedure was agreed. Both have been done.We
believe this amended proposal is the best that can be obtained by
It is now time for us to seek your views.

see a summary of the main points for and against the proposal. Please
consider these carefully and complete your ballot paper. Return
it to the Freepost address (no stamp required) by 12 noon on
Friday 19 January 2007.
This is one of the most important decisions you will be asked
to take relating to your job, I urge you to use your vote.
BOB REVIE, Branch Secretary
