Your Choice Barnet Board Meeting

The Barnet Eye would just like to take this opportunity to remind the board of Your Choice Barnet who pays your wages and who baled you out when you ran out of cash. Don't take your customers for granted.
Here are a few facts about Your Choice Barnet


Your Choice is claiming that the proposed changes to staff terms & conditions are not going to have an impact on service quality.

Currently Support Workers are paid £12.40-£13.56/ hr and Assistant Support Workers are paid £9.49-£10.07/ hr

M As & When hours: Your Choice rely heavily on As & When hours. We learnt that staff now working As & When have already had their rate cut by 25% before the consultation began.

M 28 support workers posts to be reduced to 8 support workers posts.

M Creation of 20.5 assistant support worker posts

M Enhancements for working evenings to be stopped

M Enhancements for working weekends to be stopped  (these are paid at time and a half)

M Staff working a 5 day week to be moved to a 7 working week with no extra pay.

M Up to a sixth of the workforce have requested and been granted voluntary redundancy.  This will have a massive impact on a client group who have built long term relationships with workers in which ‘trust’ is a critical feature of this relationship.

M Your Choice has commissioned a consultant to carry out a benchmarking exercise with the market competitors.
