Joint Staff Committee and Staffside Membership
Trade Unions and Professional Organisations represent and campaign on behalf of all groups of staff employed by the Trust. Regular campaigns are held in support and in defence of public services, improved pay and conditions as well as providing support and specialist advice to individual members.
East London NHS Foundation Trust has a formal recognition agreement with the trade unions and professional organisations listed below:
The Recognition agreement covers three main areas:
Each of the recognised organisations have representatives who meet with Trust managers at the bi-monthly Joint Staff Committee. The representatives who attend this meeting play an important role in influencing decisions and actions affecting all trust employees, service users and visitors.
Staffside representatives sit on the Policies Sub-Committee to ensure that policies are fair and not detrimental to staff.
