25.2     RESOLVED to recommend that the County Council note the content of the report and adopts the amended Notice of Motion as set out in paragraph 3.1 of the report. 




25.3     To date the County Council has enjoyed a positive relationship with local trades unions which has resulted in the effective management of a number of large scale change programmes.  Minimal reference to industrial action has been made by the unions in East Sussex and the County Council recognizes its responsibilities as an employer of a large, complex, people based organisation.
