Trade Union Partnership Agreement

The Trust appreciates the positive contribution that a constructive and genuine approach to partnership can make in the delivery of services to the provision of quality health and social services. We intend to develop our approach to partnering with unions, staff and staff in designing and addressing future changes and to be open and clear about the impact of these effects on staff. Downtime for union tasks and activities, including leave advice for apprenticeship union delegates (ACAS document), (PDF, 931Kb) We strive to have a climate of worker relationships within the trust, reflecting a positive and constructive relationship, typical of those experienced in a true partnership model, where employees feel valued and engaged. This means that we are open, honest and motivated together by a common desire to provide quality services to patients through effective human resource management practices. Unions play a central role in giving A voice to NHS staff at the national and local levels. They are committed to the cultural change needed to improve services. The assurance that they assure employees that their voices will be heard at the national level is essential at this time of change within the NHS. Our clinical leaders also have a role to play in involving all employees to ensure that they understand and support the agenda for change. It is only through cooperation that we will achieve the principles set out in this agreement. The consideration of whether this is a serious overhaul of the United Kingdom`s labour relations must be found in the highly decentralised British system by an analysis of agreements reached at the level of companies that purport to embody these principles.

It is impossible to specify the number of partnership contracts and the number of employees they cover, although these agreements appear to be important in the private services sector (including financial services and retail) and in recently privatized utilities (water and electricity). Although there is no one-to-do definition of partnership, there are now enough partnership agreements for key definitions to emerge. The sectoral distribution of partnership agreements is interesting. In privatized utility companies, which have a long history of public sectors with extensive centralized negotiations, the partnership can be seen as a clear aspiration for leadership to define the role of unions away from their past in the public sector. In private services, where collective bargaining and unionization have traditionally been less qualified, this can be seen as an opportunity to define a union role in sectors where worker bargaining power alone was not sufficient and is still not sufficient to ensure the recognition of employers.
