UNISON's response to the Surrey County Council Pay and Reward consultation


After dozens of workplace meetings and consultation events, 500 individual survey responses and many, many emails and calls from members, UNISON have submitted our final response to the council's Pay and Reward proposals.

This is not the end of the story though. SCC will now look at all the feedback, keep talking to us and then come back during w/b 23 May with their final offer. UNISON (and GMB) will then ballot our members on that final offer.

    Surrey Pay and reward consultation appeared to be more like taking away some of the benefits in the name of Pay and Reward . What surrey needs to do is Protect their permanent staff that has been working in extremely stressful conditions , especially the teams where there is always staff shortage and is under a lot of stress everyday . They talk about moving staff’s pay band , but they don’t move the people on the top of the current pay band to the top of the new pay bands so newly qualified staff and staff of many years of experience get paid the same which is not fair , Surrey do not do anything to retain their staff that has good skills and end up paying a lot for locum workers as skilled people who has worked for many years decide to leave Surrey after working in such stressful conditions . Locum workers who most of the time join and leave quickly as they do not have to put up with the stress . Its ridiculous to say that they are not going to give us more Annual leave as we did not ask them direct when UNISON who represents the Surrey Staff have already included this as a recommendation . I felt that after attending the Pay and Reward meeting ,this has nothing to appreciate or reward the staff that work for Surrey .
