I have agreedwith Mark that some elements of the response could be standard whilst others needed localisation. To that end below is aversion of a response that you may wish to use/adapt for local use dependant on how far along the process you are:Suggested letter response:Thank you for your letter dated xxx, in which you make a request for information from the Trust.In your letter you state that UNISON has concerns relating to xxx Trust involvement with the South West Trust Pay Cartel. Whilst Ido not recognise any such cartel I am assuming you are referring to the South West Pay, Terms and Conditions Consortium. Therefore, I am providing my responses with reference to the Consortium. Addressing each of your questions, in turn:Has the Trust joined the Consortium and, if so, why?At a recent Board meeting, the Trust agreed to be part of the Consortium, to the extent that it will work with other providers in theSouth West to review the degree to which the existing pay and reward structure remains fit for purpose. This is particularly importantin light of the challenges we face now and will continue to face in the future (i.e. contending with rising pay and non-pay costs, in theface of continued demand for services and diminishing income).All members of the Consortium acknowledge and support the work of the NHS Staff Council in its on-going discussions relating topotential changes to some elements of the Agenda for Change national pay framework. However, there is currently little indication asto what changes, if any, might be introduced and when they are likely to be effective. As a responsible employer it is prudent toexplore the potential for improvements, at a regional level, in collaboration with other trusts. Please provide minutes and any related documents of the Trust Board meetings where the Consortium has been discussed.The Board has discussed membership of the Consortium in private session. Minutes of private Board sessions are not publicdocuments. (this may vary but unlikely)Is there a Trust Board meeting scheduled to discuss joining the Consortium an, if so, when?The Consortium will be further discussed during the private session of the Board meeting on xxxxx (again this will vary)When is the Trust Board meeting to discuss Gateways 2 and 3 outlined in the project initiation document?The Board will consider any proposals arising from the scoping work being commissioned by the Consortium, when these aresubmitted. The proposals will inform any decision by the Board to progress to the next Gateway(s). Does anyone from the Trust have a specific role on the Consortium steering group?This may vary dependant on whether the Trust HRD has been involved with some of the initial steering group work. Is the Trust hosting the financial funding for the Consortium?No. (Someone will be a YES)Has the Trust committed to the initial 10k required for membership of the Consortium?No or Yes (dependant on whether the Board has met)What finance has the Trust committed beyond the 10k referred to above, or does the Trust envisage committing, towardsthe cost of the Consortium?Any future financial commitment will be dependent upon the Trusts continuing support, or otherwise, for any courses of actionproposed by the Consortium working group.What areas of Agenda for Change are being considered for change by the Trust and why?To date, the focus of activity has been on preparing the basis on w
