UNISON, Sodexo and the North Devon Healthcare Trust held further talks on Monday 11 January in an attempt to resolve the dispute around the implementation of Agenda for Change for Sodexo staff. The talks were facilitated by ACAS.

Helen Eccles, UNISON's Regional Organiser, said: "The talks were constructive and serious progress was made in several key areas. However, significant gaps are still evident between the staff position and the employer's offer.

"We are having further talks on Thursday morning (January 14), again facilitated by ACAS. We will be reporting back to our members on Friday morning when decisions will be taken about whether further strike action will be necessary.
