And following on from the recent constructive response, received from the Trade Unions, in relation to the proposed Public Sector Comparator (PSC) [in-house] option, the relevant workforce members were formally balloted on their intentions.
Results, as received tonight, are very positive:
- 70% response rate
- with 94% of those voting in support of the PSC changes
If the Council now backs the PSC option tomorrow, then management AND Trade Unions will have an obligation to get the in-house implementation right.
With a bit of good-will on all sides, I'm confident it can be done.
