UNISON and Unite have become aware that Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council employees have received letters from the employer over the weekend informing them that there is a change of pay date affecting employees paid mid and end of month.
What Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council is seeking to do is a contractual change which staff DO NOT have to agree to if they do not wish.
Whilst the trade unions ‘have been consulted’ we told the Council NO on the basis it is a change of contract which is of no benefit to the employee and the Council refused to offer an incentive to change.
The Joint Trade Unions are seeking to clarify the situation and will brief members as soon as possible.
In the meantime if you are affected by this change in particularly those paid on the 15th of the month please contact the Branch office on 01254 585220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
