Hibu News

Prospect have received notification from Hibu of another restructuring within the company that is anticipated to see a reduction of 450 roles in the UK (circa 20% UK headcount).

We are aware that members will have started to receive the outcome of their selection process, and subsequently may have received a redundancy notice. Given the volume of queries we anticipate, Johanna Baxter (Negotiations Officer) has arranged to be in Hibu and is available to see members between 11:00am and 5:00pm May 28th 2014 for a drop in surgery in Room 9.24.

Since our initial collective consultation meeting with the company on the 10th April consultations have been progressed at a departmental level where the focus has been on looking at the company’s proposals for the new structures, the selection criteria and selection processes to be followed. We have made a number of points and representations about those proposals many of which have been incorporated and most areas are now moving into the selection phase.
