Whilst some consultation has taken place with local UNISON representatives on this review in recent weeks we were only sent the paper outlining the options being put before the committee yesterday. Immediately we received this paper we raised a number of issues and concerns with the council on the proposals it contains. Our letter to the council outlining our concerns is attached for your information (See below).  Please do read this and share it with your colleagues. Link to letter We will try to get answers to the questions we have raised and as soon as we do we will update you on developments.  We will also keep an close eye on developments at the Committee meeting tomorrow and review the position depending on what happens at that meeting. Please be assured that we will do everything we can to mitigate the effects of these proposals on you.
