LBNC: Organisational Design
LBNC—Organisational Design: latest developments…
Members will be aware that alongside colleagues in PCS we have been speaking to the business about this change since October ’22.
On 31 January the business emailed members to provide the timeline for the “role allocation” process. Members were quickly in touch to highlight that despite assurances provided by the business, they had not received important detail in advance of the process starting – including case studies/work examples, an organisation chart and the roles in the new structure.
We are pleased to say that the Director and Deputy Director accepted our request for an urgent meeting, and this took place on 6 February. At that meeting:
- LB assured TUS that the organisational chart and role profiles would be published. These were emailed to members on 6 February.
- LB provided some assurance TUS that appropriate processes and policies were followed in designing the roles in the new structure. We have asked for some further clarity
- LB and HR representatives told TUS that where a role continues from the old structure into the new, the current jobholder will be matched to the role.
ARC have also accepted an invite to attend matching panels as observers. This will give us the opportunity to see the process in action and to raise any concerns about the process in real time. Please note that we will be observing the process. Both the business and TUS are clear that presence does not mean approval of any decisions made and does not interfere with members’ right to appeal.
We will provide further updates as necessary.
Following publication of the organisational structure and role profiles, some of you have already contacted us to outline new or continued concerns. If members do have issues to raise and please do not hesitate to email me (Scott McFarlane) or Jonathan Kilner. Please mark any emails as ‘Private’ and use the subject ‘LBNC: Organisational Design’.
