Consultation will take place with the trades unions when:

  • they have a legal entitlement to be consulted
  • they can reasonably expect to be consulted because the proposals and policies under consideration would have a significant impact on them and the workforce they represent

While it is not possible to provide a comprehensive list of subjects for consultation, the following gives examples of subjects that are appropriate for consultation:

  • reviewing terms and conditions of employment
  • new ways of working
  • organisational restructuring (including job matching and creation/deletion of posts)
  • reductions in the workforce
  • staff relocation
  • shared services with external partners
  • business transfers

These issues may often result in the presentation of a business case or report to CMT and the relevant committee after consultation has been completed.
