- If an individual Unite member employed by NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde has a
work-related problem, they should follow this procedure
- Discuss the matter informally with your supervisor or line manager.
- If this does not resolve the matter (*) ask your local Unite Steward/Representative
(**) for advice. Many issues can be resolved informally at this stage. However, if appropriate, the matter can be put into the formal grievance procedure.
- If necessary, the local Steward/Representative can ask for assistance from a Senior
Representative covering that area (e.g. Glasgow Royal,QEUH etc).
(*) Please note that return to work discussions are a standard part of the
sickness absence procedure and normally union representation should not be necessary unless, and until, a formal review of attendance is proposed by Management. This formal review meeting must
be arranged separately giving the employee time to arrange to be accompanied by a union representative.
(**) If you do not have a local Unite steward/representative, then contact the appropriate
Senior Representative (see below) for advice.
