Prospect news stories
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.
Following two meetings, Prospect has now received a final pay offer for 2014 from Computacenter.
Sue Ferns, Prospect’s director of communications and research is a regular blogger for the Guardian’s public leaders network. This month Sue has written about new guidance on performance management the union has produced for its civil service members.
Following the successful “Helping and Advising Members at Work” course held in Belfast in December, Prospect has organised further training for Northern Ireland and Isle of Man reps.
Prospect union members at the UK Hydrographic Office, based in Taunton Somerset, are today (Monday) voting in a ballot for industrial action over pay.
