What do you think our profession is worth in Local Government?
Many Local Government Authorities have or are currently going through a job
evaluation process and it appears, from initial discussions with my colleagues,
that our profession - Records Management, is coming out of this with lowered
grades and salaries, causing upset and dissatisfaction amongst our members.
I am asking the community to band together on this and ensure our profession
is treated fairly in the Local Government job evaluation process.
I will be sending my information to the RMS (Records Management Society) in
the hope that they will take the lead in ensuring a co-ordinated approach to
establishing our worth for the job we do in Local Government.
Please feel free to send me your experiences and/or thoughts on this (offline)
and I also welcome a discussion on line if appropriate, and I will ensure the
information is passed on to the RMS to help enlighten those who appear to be
downgrading the valuable job we do.
We need to show a common front at this time.
Compliance and Records Management Officer
