Trade union information


Total number of staff who are Union Representatives: 17 (13.5 FTE) -

  • Trade Unions represented: UNISON for full consultation purposes and ALACE  
  • Percentage of pay bill spent on facility time: 0.10%

The UNISON branches for South Norfolk and Broadland joined on the 1 January 2019 to become the Yare Valley Branch. 

During the financial year a significant amount of time was spent supporting a whole organisation restructure, in addition to agreeing revised terms and conditions to create a full One Team Structure to support the two Councils. During this period two representatives spent 90% of their time on facility work and were funded by the organisation. From January 2020 this has reduced to a 50% funded role.
