Policy and Strategy Committee met this morning - despite the weather! - and almost all Councillors and Directors were present ;-)
There was indeed a division on the TEL/tie appointment process, between Labour and the Lib-Dems/Tories, with the SNP abstaining ... overall, more heat than light I fear :-(
Brief, but interesting, debate on the "Modernising Pay - Protected Pay" report, which can be found here ... I asked for the report to referred to Full Council with any available update, to no avail when it came to a vote, but ensured it got there under Standing Order 53.
A lot of employees are pretty angry about this issue - which I accept boils down to a difference of view on how the 'Modernising Pay' agreement is interpreted - but given all the challenges about to face the Council workforce, I'd have thought an update report (on this specific issue) to Full Council would be the least the Administration should be doing??
