Consultation for alignment of LDST support staff terms and conditions

LDST, is proposing harmonisation of terms and conditions for support staff to ensure consistency and fairness across the Trust,  and UNISON has been involved in detailed discussions regarding these proposals.

The changes will align the following:

  • The calculation of term time only (TTO) pay
  • The number of working weeks in a year
  • The number of working hours in a week
  • Annual holiday entitlement

It is anticipated that these changes will be beneficial or have a neutral impact for colleagues. The consultation for these changes will begin on 21/03/2022 and run for 30 days. The consultation period include the following virtual consultation sessions, which are open to ALL support staff and supported by Unison:

  • 21/3 at 16.00 – 17.00

Dial-in details can also be provided for any colleagues who cannot video call – please let me know if you require these details.

We hope you are to attend one of the above Zoom meetings to gain the proposal information. One of the consultation sessions will be recorded and put on to the Trust’s intranet page for colleagues to watch at their leisure, alongside the presentation and associated documents.

All staff will be able to request a 1:1 consultation session if they have questions relating to their personal circumstances.

We have sent an email to our members who we hold an email address for, but please feel free to share this information with any of your support staff colleagues.

Best wishes,
