Performance Management Reporting systems
Our recent Editorial piece.
Current IL policy- The following motion was debated and adopted by the national all-members’ meeting held on 23 July 2016:
- PMR Campaign
This Meeting notes that the NEC has launched a PMR campaign and in principle welcomes such a campaign and very much wishes to see it succeed, especially at a time when many civil service management teams are increasingly persuaded that the current system is burdensome, costly and of little or no business benefit whilst being divisive, discriminatory, a cause of ill health and huge amounts of conflict.
This Meeting further notes that:
- The NEC’s national PMR campaign was launched in June on the PCS website but without prior briefing to Branches;
- The first that representatives knew of the campaign was when they spotted it on the PCS site or were told by another representative or by a member;
- When the Campaign was announced it lacked critical detail, for instance with regard to grievances and test cases;
- Full time officers were not briefed and were therefore unable to answer questions from branches.
- The Week of Action was launched without proper notice and preparation;
- The Early Day Motion has been launched without proper preparation of branches;
- Such an ill-coordinated campaign reduces the ability of very hard pressed representatives who are operating on small amounts of facility time, to promote the campaign.
This Meeting agrees to:
- Encourage local and National civil service Branches and Groups to be very active in promoting the campaign;
- Urge the NEC to ensure that, going forward representatives , including negotiators, are:
- Advised of the explicit aims of the campaign;
- Told how the legal test cases will be managed, with the explicit reassurance that this task will not be left to lay representatives;
- Properly briefed in good time before each stage of the campaign.
- Set out on the IL website a special page on PMR.
