The Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO) has published a report titled: The Way Ahead: Trade Unions and the Third Sectori. The report assesses the current relationship between the two parties and outlines the potential for a step-change in dialogue.
The report says that Unions and third sector organisations should develop a national strategy for improving human resources and industrial relations, individual unions should re-examine their “offers” to third sector employees to ensure they reflect the variety of their aspirations and needs, that Unions and the third sector should consider together those issues on which a joint approach to government would pay dividends and that the government should signal its support for engagement between unions and the third sector, and facilitate dialogue towards this end.
