DTI awards £50,000 to Thames Water-trade union partnership

A
partnership deal between Thames Water and trade unions has received a £50,000
award from the DTI.

The
company received the maximum sum allowed from the Government’s Partnership Fund
and was one of only 41 to be given an award from 160 applicants. The funding
ensures that many partnerships agreed in August with Unison, the GMB, the AEEU
and the TGWU will receive support.

The
partnership aims to introduce new forums to enhance employee involvement,
training and development initiatives and work-life balance schemes for part
time working.
