Trade Union Recognition

Trade Union Recognition An increasing number of organizations are addressing the issue of trade union recognition, particularly NHS trusts considering introducing local pay determination. Burnley NHS Trust developed a strategic approach to the issue, establishing pre‐determined outcomes and measurable criteria to determine which organizations – if any – would have recognition extended for the purpose of local pay determination. The staff side case is examined in detail along with three other options: a staff association, recognition for some and recognition for none. Four organizations – representing 95 per cent of the unionized workforce – accepted recognition, with safeguards for 14 others. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Health Manpower Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

An increasing number of organizations are addressing the issue of trade union recognition, particularly NHS trusts considering introducing local pay determination. Burnley NHS Trust developed a strategic approach to the issue, establishing pre‐determined outcomes and measurable criteria to determine which organizations – if any – would have recognition extended for the purpose of local pay determination. The staff side case is examined in detail along with three other options: a staff association, recognition for some and recognition for none. Four organizations – representing 95 per cent of the unionized workforce – accepted recognition, with safeguards for 14 others.
