Consultative Committee for Support Staff
Terms of Reference
The Consultative Committee for Support Staff provides a forum for communication, consultation and discussion between the University and support staff representatives regarding University policies, current issues and future developments. The Consultative Committee may concern itself with general issues regarding working conditions, training and welfare of support staff. Issues will normally be raised through the appropriate University channels prior to it being raised at the Consultative Committee.
Matters which are the subject of national terms and conditions or Procedure Agreements with the recognised trade unions, UNISON and UNITE, may not be considered by the Consultative Committee, although points of information or clarification may be raised. Terms and conditions agreed locally, including pay negotiations for O&F and APM (levels 1 - 3) staff, will be conducted by the Consultative Committee. However, where matters arise which affect only one (or two) support staff group(s), staff side and management side may agree to a Sub-Committee meeting of that group(s) to discuss the specific matter.
The Committee will report to People and Culture Committee, a sub-committee of the University Executive Board.
