Rumours of EH strike?

Is there anything in the AUP that precludes posters from insulting the Royal family??? Cos if not.......

But to provide a little balance I got the following from the PCS web site

'PCS members in English Heritage have been presented with a pay offer that will introduce:

? Regional pay ranges; and
? Market and performance pay

The proposals form part of a three year deal (2008-2011) and the impact will have a devastating affect on staff in the lower bands and in Visitor Operations, as the proposals will affect our members? future pension entitlement and annual pay increases.

While English Heritage management plan to reduce our members? salaries, they are looking to reward other staff in the organisation with large pay rises.

We think it is unfair and will hamper the ability for English Heritage to continue its important work, as our members will be demoralised and some may even have to leave if their pay is reduced any further.

Our members provide vital support to specialist staff and are essential to attracting visitors, educating school children and promoting the organisation and its work on the hundreds of sites across the country'.

More a statement of fact really. Anyway, its only an insult if he thinks dressing up as a Nazi is wrong, in which case - why did he do it?

No don't get me wrong Gog, I'm all for insulting royalty.....especially the second and third sons of any royal generation, the wives, the hangers-on, squirm-ees, toadies, the cousins, the sisters and the aunts, the butlers, ex butlers, butlers to come and.......prince Phillip!! Just wanted to check that it didn't break any rules....

Are there any details of this pay. As far as I can tell eh does not exist in my area and what market are they in?

Can't really go into details, Unit of 1, because I might get into trouble if I do, and then I'd be sad. But to attempt to explain the general terms:

Regional pay - this would give an organisation the ability to pay staff more in areas where there is a higher cost of living, less in areas that are perceived to be less expensive. EH, for example has visitor operations and other staff in sites across England, as well as regional offices.

Market pay - the ability to pay above 'normal' pay scales where there is difficulty in recruiting to an organisation's normal pay scales, e.g. IT people.

Does this help?

Go on, into details. It must be very sad to work for an organisation. I understand that eh has members, maybe we all at bajr could join and put up a vote against the tyrants. Are the members involved in these negotiations. And you say there are regions, are eh beholden at the local level, maybe I could put pressure on my parish councillor to get it sorted out, what?s else is democracy for. I have tried reading this

and then this
http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/uploa...1248327162

although I haven?t got much time as I am mostly reading this at the moment

http://www.amazon.co.uk/World-History-Be...0715628275

and my backlog is criminal.

And from this
http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/serve.../nav.11453

I can work out that as we speak (type) that they are into a second day of expenses.

Has anybody got any dirt on them?

Come dig with me, lets dig lets dig away
If you can use, some exotic booze
Theres a bar in far bombay
Come dig with me, well dig well dig away

Come dig with me, lets float down to peru
In lama land, theres a one man band
And hell toot his flute for you
Come dig with me, well float down in the blue

Once I get you up there, where the air is rarefied
Well just glide, starry eyed
Once I get you up there, Ill be holding you so near
You may here, angels cheer - because were together

Weather wise its such a lovely day
You just say the words, and well beat the birds
Down to acapulco bay
Its perfect, for a diggig honeymoon - they say
Come dig with me, well dig well dig away
