It seems that the Prospect reps have been talking they are feeling pretty demoralised about the whole thing. Spoke to my rep the other who said they all feel Prospect cant do the job but are looking for a possible way for T.O's to join with the PCS . Thoughts anyone?

Have any of the reps approached members regarding our issue with Prospect? Surely they must know something is wrong if they have not already been informed of our feelings by some of the members. So far I have heard nothing regarding what Prospect intend to do to try and keep it's members. If our rep...

keokeo is right, i do remember John higgins saying that about our future salary, pity we new no different at that time but it did seem too good to be true. Perhaps their false promises will back fire on them if we manage what we set out to achieve!

As I percieve it 2006 negotiations were cut and dry When our offer was implemented by the HA despite a ballot rejecting the offer in favour of more negotiation. Negotiations have already begun for 2007 , how does this constitute a strong position. Surely the HA sees Prospect and its members as weak ...

I dont see we have anything to lose by trying to instigate change and dont see why changing will weaken our position. By now word of this should have made its way to prospect house via the reps and if this wakes them up and makes them realise how let down everybody feels then good,this could be reso...

Good point, but if we start with on-road and we pull it off, off-road might follow suit,we need to make this work for us first. As for the issue of T.Os not voting who had a ballot paper maybe they had a good idea what the outcome was going to be. Or there is the anonimity issue. Perhaps things like...

No faith in Prospect , time to change

In light of recent events regarding pay negotiations and proposed industrial action by Prospect, myself and many of my brothers and sisters have become disheartened and see no positive direction by the union that represents us. One of my brothers has been talking to a represen...
