February 2024 - Chapter 5 amends
A full factor 2 rewrite to ensure consistency of definition and clarity in language across the full breadth of information provided. No new provisions have been added beyond the clarification of the existing information. The chapter has been reorganised into a table format for accessibility purposes.
January 2020 - Chapter 3 amends
New paragraph added to 7.2.
To this end, employers should work in partnership with unions to ensure that members of trade unions and other staff organisations recognised for purposes of collective bargaining at local level are recruited, trained and released appropriately to participate in the partnership operation and monitoring of the scheme. Such staff can but do not need to be accredited trade union representatives unless agreed otherwise locally, but they should be employed by their local organisation and be nominated by and accountable to their local trade union branch and/or staff side. (NB the Scottish terms and conditions committee has stipulated that staff side job evaluation/matching practitioners must also be accredited trade union reps.) In exceptional circumstances and only by local partnership agreement, job matching or evaluation may need to be done by a third party organisation to meet local capacity needs on a temporary basis (see section 8.4 for more details on when this is possible).
