So, these would be impositions which changed your terms and conditions then?



Care to back up that statement with some proof? Lies about 500 payments to VCC's are pure BASSA fantasy.

Tying up union resources in a pointless battle over necessary cost savings means BASSA/Unite is utterly unprepared for the next major challenge to hit its members. Once again they have completely...
