A Trade Union Recognition Agreement between the NUT, other unions and E-ACT was signed in 2009. We have also reached agreement on some policies and procedures. Unfortunately that has not always been possible and in some cases E-ACT has decided to implement the policies without agreement. The new E-ACT Employment Manual – imposed from September 2015 without agreement – is a case in point.

Employment Policies in E-ACT academies

In September 2015 E-ACT implemented its Employment Manual across all its academies.  The Manual was imposed without agreement with the trade unions.  The unions have now secured improvements to a number of the policies contained within the Manual including pay, appraisal, capability, disciplinary, maternity, adoption, parental and shared parental leave and alcohol and substance abuse policies. The unions have not agreed E-ACT’s sickness management policy.
