GMB PKC Members
We have  had confirmation that if you are moved between jobs, or redeployed into other sectors you will be paid the rate for the job if that grade is higher.
We absolutely welcome that. If you are redeployed into a post that is a lower grade, you will continue to be paid at your usual rate of pay.
Our biggest concern at the moment is that of Modern Apprentices (MAs). If you have any MAs working alongside you or know any, would you please let them see this  briefing and ask them to contact us or call our temporary number which is 07946 661375.. We want to make sure that MAs are getting the best representation possible at this time, which includes us ensuring that the council paying the rate for the job, provide emotional support, and not exploiting young people in any way.
Having young people doing life and limb work will most likely have a very long term impact on wellbeing and we need to hear from you to ensure you are not being exploited.
For all our members, please remember that redeployment is entirely voluntary, and if you feel that you are redeployed into posts that you feel you cannot do, then please do let us know.
