Given that it is stated on the updated Personnel website that ‘final arrangements are subject to approval by Council on the recommendations of the Personnel Committee later in MT2017’, will Council clarify exactly what is referred to in its reply implying that these have already been approved by Congregation: the new procedures that incorporate the changes approved by Congregation in May 2017 will be monitored by the Personnel Committee and the next review will take place in 2021.
Congregation agreed changes to the age and coverage of the EJRA in May 2017, to take effect from 1 October 2017. The revised policy and procedure that take account of these changes and of the other recommendations of the EJRA Review Group were considered by Personnel Committee on 19 October and recommended to Council. Council considered them on 27 November and approved them for immediate publication on the Personnel website. They will be monitored by Personnel Committee and reviewed in 2021.
