Surplus Staff

It has been drawn to the attention of the National Executive that NOMS are considering moving non mobile surplus staff as part of new benchmarking profiles, to date there has been no consultation on this issue at national level.

The NEC have contacted NOMS to establish under what policy they believe they can change or vary terms and conditions without agreement and move non-mobile grades. The Executive are aware that OSG’s have previously been moved when establishments have been closed or individuals have agreed to move.

At present the Executive are awaiting confirmation of a meeting with the policy lead on this issue. Until such time as the Executive have determined a suitable way forward we would advise all members not to agree to any proposals or offers from local management if they are declared surplus and a non-mobile grade.

Please draw the contents of this circular to all members.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support and co-operation.


Yours sincerely


General Secretary
