The HSU has been informed by members that some workers have been spoken to about redeployment or redundancy. This appears to constitute major workplace change. The HSU has sort clarification from Fresh Hope as to their plans.
If you are affected, you should contact the HSU if you would like representation in the consultation process.
It is important that members know their rights in any change process:
You have the right to be consulted about the change. That gives you the right to raise any issues with the change and management must give consideration to those issues.
You have the right to say NO! Contracted hours cannot be cut without your approval. Cuts to jobs can occur, but only with agreement, a redundancy or redeployment to a comparable position. Do not sign anything you are not happy with.
You have the right for the changes to be put to you in writing and time to consider them.
You have the right to representation! Ensure you are represented by the HSU when discussing major workplace change.
