Trade Unions

The Highland Council is committed to developing and maintaining good employee relations and recognises a number of trade unions for the purpose of collective bargaining at local level. Our agreed Protocol for Informing and Consulting with Highland Council Employees sets out further details.

We encourage employees to join a trade union if they so wish. Employees who are not a member of a union or a member of a non-recognised union will also be bound by locally negotiated agreements reached through the Joint Consultative Group (JCG) and the Local Negotiating Committee for Teachers (LNCT).
