NHS Staff Council On Call Review

In Reps Direct 756 I asked for information about the on call arrangements at your workplace. We have received a huge response - greater than anything previously -and I should like to thank all of you who have responded. There is still time to submit further information after the original deadline since there has been a delay in commencing the national on call review with the NHS employers.

At the Staff Council Executive agreement was reached on the extension of the four year protection arrangements for pre-AfC on call agreements. Protection will continue until 31st March 2010 with the intention of implementing any new national agreement on 1st April 2010. Unite will ballot its NHS membership on any new proposed on call agreement.
