Conciliation Sub-Committee


The purpose of the Sub-Committee is -

(a)      to provide a conciliation, mediation or arbitration function aimed at resolving any areas of dispute/non-agreement between the                 authority and its recognised trade unions, where other agreed channels have failed to resolve the issue.

(b)      to consider and resolve, where necessary, disputes affecting teaching and/or non-teaching staff, in relation to:-

  • Terms and conditions of employment (excluding pay negotiations which will be conducted separately).
  • Legislation affecting the council’s employees.
  • Organisational change.
  • Personnel Policy Procedures (not individual cases).
  • Grading, duties and the organisation of work (not individual cases).
  • Facilities for Trade Union Representatives.
  • Health, safety and welfare.
  • Arrangements for consultation.
  • Housing.
  • Indemnification procedures.
  • Other allowances

The Conciliation Sub-Committee is an eight member group with the addition of two trade union representatives.

For disputes involving teaching staff, the Chair of Education and Children’s Services Committee shall be a member of the Sub-Committee and shall be included within the political proportionality calculation for that purpose.
