Automated Hours Data Capture (AHDC) and Resource Scheduler – Trials Update
Branches and Representatives will be aware of the trial activity that has been taking place in relation to AHDC and Resource Scheduler (LTB’s 295/18 and 441/18 refer). The current status in relation to both of these trials is that they continue to be the subject of National review and discussion and that no agreements have been concluded in respect of deployment.
For the information of Branches we have however recently become aware of advertisements that have been issued by the business for managerial positions on the Enterprise Team which appear to indicate that both initiatives are to be deployed. Representation has therefore been made to the business on the basis of reaffirming that the commitments contained within the National Guiding Principles Agreement and the Terms of References for both initiatives have not been met and onward deployment has not been agreed.
In response the business has acknowledged that the wording on the job advert appears more definite than the current understanding on the Joint Working Groups would support and have clarified that the adverts have been issued to generate enthusiasm amongst potential candidates. Equally, they have informed us that it would be made absolutely clear to candidates at the selection stage that both initiatives are still subject to joint activity, discussion and National agreement prior to any further roll out.
We will of course report to Branches and Representatives any developments in relation to the outputs of the National reviews at the appropriate time. However, in the meantime you are asked to ensure that should any attempts be made to progress to deployment for either of these initiatives that the relevant department is made aware as a matter of urgency.
Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to:
