Following constructive discussions with the Trade Unions (TUs), the Trust has agreed to stop plans to set up the Trust subsidiary whilst all other options are explored with all TUs.
In return, the TUs agree not to take planned industrial action, nor will take future industrial action until all other options are explored.
The first discussions are planned to commence week commencing 6th January 2020 and will continue on at least a weekly basis.
The Trust agrees to share, on a confidential basis, further information including the full business case to enable TUs to actively engage in the process.
All parties have agreed to extend the industrial action ballot mandate until 30th June 2020 for all three Unions.
