  • In march 2005 employers employing 150 or more staff will be compelled to comply with legislation on information and consultation. This will mean that employers with existing agreements with their staff will simply continue with what they have been doing, but those employers with no existing agreements will have to give some thought to put something in place. This could be in the form of a staff forum or in some case some employers may wish to engage a trade union. We already know through discussions with members of the senior management team in Harvest that relations generally with staff across the organisation are good, however what the management team have recognised is that there is no form of consultative body representing staff within the employee population. The snr management team have suggested that the needs of staff could be best served by a trade union. Discussions have already taken place with two trade unions and it was felt given the information during these discussions that Amicus would be the most relevant trade union
