I attach the Report that we prepared for the Staffing Committee. As you know, the Staffing Committee agreed the changes and nodded through the management proposals. UNISON and GMB were both able to speak to the Committee and both trade unions put the case as forcibly as possible. We also expressed our anger that we had not been allowed to speak at Cabinet, Full Council or Labour Group and we believed that the decision had already been made before this meeting.
