Men fight and lose the battle, and the thing that they fought for comes about in spite of their defeat, and when it comes turns out not to be what they meant, and other men have to fight for what they meant under another name. (William Morris - A Dream of John Ball)

How not to organise a pay consultation

‎Yesterday it was announced that consultation with UNISON members on the scandalously inadequate pay proposals would commence today.

This consultation will be undertaken by branches.

As a Branch Secretary I have yet to have sight of the question we are supposed to ask our members, so that we can print ballot papers, stuff envelopes and distribute same to our members.

Nor, for that matter, do we have the detail promised following Monday's meeting of the Joint Secretaries.

It is as well I didn't cancel my attendance at pensions training this afternoon to stuff envelopes.

And, since I'm learning about "basis points" I may have another way to describe the pay proposals soon...
