We are pleased to announce that we have signed a recognition agreement with MND Scotland, the leading charity in Scotland that funds ground-breaking motor neuron disease (MND) research.
MND Scotland was founded from humble beginnings in 1981 by police officer John Macleod who set up the Scottish MND Association from his living room – two years later, he was diagnosed with motor neuron disease at age 33. Today, MND Scotland supports hundreds of people living with MND, raises awareness of MND and invests in cutting-edge MND research.
This recognition agreement will allow Community to negotiate on the annual pay award, holidays and hours as well as providing assistance and services to our members at MND Scotland. The agreement also allows consultation on a wide range of additional issues and contains a firm commitment to maintain constructive and effective relationships between union and employer.
Jason Wyllie, Regional Organiser at Community, says:
“We’re delighted to welcome MND Scotland into the Community family. This recognition agreement will give Community members a vital voice on pay and conditions at work, while also strengthening our partnership with the organisation. We look forward to working with them and the vital work they do in supporting people with motor neuron disease.”
Interested in securing Community recognition?
Having a recognition agreement in place allows Community to bargain on behalf of employees on things like the annual pay award and terms and conditions. It can also make the union stronger in the workplace as union Reps would be entitled to time off to complete their duties.
