Hibu Negotiations Update, Administration, Redundancy Policy, Bonus Pay and Salary Review - Jan 2014

29 January 2014

Hibu Administration

Members will have seen some press coverage recently indicating that Hibu is being placed into administration.  Prospect were not informed of this prior to it appearing in the press.  However we sought clarity from the company and understand that as part of this restructuring a number of non-trading parts of the Group, including hibu plc, will be wound down.  However, the trading companies in which the company works and with whom customers, partners and suppliers do business are not affected by this technical process.  Hibu UK – your employing organisation – is similarly unaffected by this development as are your employment terms and conditions.

Telefónica Pay 2014 News

21 January 2014

Prospect has been negotiating with Telefonica over pay proposals for 2014. We have now reached a proposed pay settlement which we are prepared to recommend to the grades we collectively represent. The proposals would apply to MPG2/4, PSG1, PSG2, RCGS1/10, RCGS2/20 and RCGS3/30 in Telefonica UK, TGT and Digital. We will invite these members to take part in an e-ballot over the coming weeks. Prospect believes, given the current economic climate and the financial constraints Telefónica is under, this is a good deal for our members and as such your negotiating team strongly recommends it.

Performance Management & Sales Achievements in BT Business

Prospect has raised concerns with BT Business that in some sales units achievement against sales targets are being used to directly determine individual quarterly DPR markings.

Update for BT Openreach members, January 2014

Members Update

Can we start by wishing all members a Happy New Year. 2014 has started with some terrible weather in many parts of the country and this has meant many of you having to work flat out to cope, with Openreach now calling for contractual overtime amongst engineers in some regions to clear the backlog of work. 

This will means some OM’s in affected regions may be asked to volunteer to come in on a Saturday for a period. Management have told Prospect arrangements for this will be discussed at a local level. It should be remembered any Saturday attendance is voluntary and if you do attend you should later take TOIL. If you experience any problems with this contact your local rep or the Prospect helpdesk on 020 8971 6060 or helpdesk@prospect.org.uk

This update will cover some of the main topics which Prospect will be dealing with in Openreach in 2014 and also looks at the work of the Prospect Openreach Industrial Relations Committee.
