25 Notice of Motion: Opposition to the Trade Union Bill ('the Bill') pdf icon PDF 204 KB

Report by the Chief Operating Officer

Minutes:

25.1     The Lead Member considered a report by the Chief Operating Officer.  Lynda Walker, Branch Secretary of Unison, spoke in support of the Notice of Motion. 

 

DECISIONS

 

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. 

 

Reasons

 

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.
