The union for professionals at QinetiQ

Many employees find their work at QinetiQ stimulating and challenging. They like the people they work with, and many love the opportunity to apply their talents in a highly specialised environment. Yet the importance of professional employees does not always seem to be recognised and valued by QinetiQ management. Professionals report on a range of barriers that stand in the way of performing to their full potential.
Issues such as genuine reward for performance, professional development, procedures for fair treatment, and more open communications with management, are some of the issues identified as priorities for professionals.
With effect from March 2012 the company have put the Employee Engagement Group in place of trade union recognition yet, despite company assurances to the contrary, when TUPE transfers were being made, EEG reps and the staff affected were not given access to independent legal advice. Prospect will continue to defend the interests of a large number of employees working at QinetiQ.
Being a member of a trade union provides a collective strength. We need each of our members to speak to colleagues to tell them why they joined and what services they have benefitted from.
Prospect listens to members and acts on the issues important to QinetiQ professionals.
