We have received details of UNISON’s consultation of its branches relating to their 2020 pay claim.
They have proposed that the pay claim be for 10% or £10 per hour, whichever is the greater. For reference, the minimum NJC hourly rate wef 1 April 2019 is £9 per hour.
GMB and Unite are also consulting on what they would like to see included in the pay claim.
The National Employers are meeting the TU Side on 24 July to formally receive the unions’ pay claim. There will then follow a process of consultation with councils.
SEE has now arranged for the South East Region Pay Briefing to consult with our councils. This is your opportunity to input into the National Employers’ considerations regarding their response to the unions.

Did you know that there’s now a 1 in 2 chance that a small organisation will be the victim of cyber crime? Town and parish councils and SMEs seldom have the resources to employ dedicated staff to protect themselves, and being aware of potential threats is the responsibility of every employee. The average cyber crime in the UK results in a loss running to tens of thousands of pounds which any organisation can ill afford, let alone small ones.
SEE runs SEGWARP for larger organisations, but now we’re bringing that expertise to our smaller authorities and local businesses. Join us for a briefing session run by officers from the Regional Organised Crime Unit of Thames Valley Police, who work alongside the National Cyber Security Centre raising awareness and offering training to help minimise the risk of you falling victim. Topics will include how to spot fraud in emails, current threats, what to do if you have a data breach, how to choose a great, safe password and more. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions of the officers.
Tickets for this invaluable event are £15 per attendee, to cover our venue and refreshment costs. A small price to pay to help keep your organisation safe!
Please ensure you read our cancellation policy before booking as places cancelled less than two weeks before the event will not be refunded.

The South East Strategic HR Board was set up by SEE as a top level forum for Heads of HR in the SE Region, meeting for a full day once a year in London. Building on our collective capacity and resources through a centralised ‘hub’ of expertise, we will increase consistency in our policies and practices to reduce our individual vulnerabilities.
Apart from the ‘business’ aspects, this structured networking facility will enable greater collaboration and shared learning – a mix of strategic issues to engage, challenge and debate and to raise awareness about current and future initiatives at a national, regional and local level.
This event is free to SEE members. Please read our cancellation policy for free-to-attend events.
We are currently developing the programme for this year so if you have any topics you would like us to consider or have heard a speaker that you think your colleagues would value then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Heads of HR or their nominated representative.

For the third time, the South East Challenge is coming back to our region in March 2020. Different scenarios, different tasks but the same great atmosphere and learning opportunity.
The public sector is facing a time of unprecedented change like never seen before. Local authorities are being forced to find new ways to deliver more for less due to severe constraints on funding. There is a need to produce services that offer people greater choice and control over their daily lives and to engage actively with the public to develop them. Tackling these issues can only be done in conjunction with re-training and re-motivating your staff to cope with the challenges this presents.
Your workforce also needs to be able to adapt, not just to any immediate changes but to be flexible enough to continually adapt to any roles that may be required in the future.
First launched in the Eastern region in 2013, the Local Authority Challenge is now delivered across 7 different regions in England. Created by Breckland Training Services and delivered in partnership with SEE, the challenge offers a rare opportunity for aspiring managers across the public sector to gain exposure to issues outside of their normal working lives and give them a taste of what senior management is like!
The challenge is open to teams of six people in any area of public sector work. Delegates will spend the day as the management team of a fictional local authority, encountering many of the tasks that a real corporate team would deal with. They’ll have to work as a team, with neighbouring councils and with partner organisations to deliver a new strategy for the council. They’ll have to choose which areas to prioritise, deal with politically sensitive issues and still keep their focus on how to give the public the best services with limited resources.
We’re also keen to hear from you if you’d like to participate by volunteering to act as an assessor or role-player. If you wish to register your interest please email us.
