Dear Members

As you may know, UNISON representatives were invited to a series of meetings this morning (7th) to be briefed on proposals that are going for Council approval on 13th December.

The information we received was focused on the 3rd phase of Council restructuring and did not focus on any cuts that would be going forward to the Councils budget meeting in February.

To date we have not been given copies of the reports and as such we would ask that you give us some time to properly digest what we were told this morning and to corroborate it with the contents of the  reports when they are released tonight.

We understand that staff will be briefed this afternoon and would ask that any specific concerns be directed to your local UNISON steward in the meantime.

We will be in contact in due course.
