Project X - delivered on One Barnet
Project X was one of the action to be completed on the last day of One Barnet strike action on Thursday 9 February.
Letters were sent to 6 Big private sector companies
The letters were signed by staff currently working in services which are down to be outsourced early 2013.
This is what was in the letter
Dear Chief Executive
We are employees for the London Borough of Barnet providing services which your company is interested in taking over. We are currently in dispute with our employer, London Borough of Barnet, as we wish to remain working for the authority and to be based in Barnet.
We want to take this opportunity on the fourth day of strike action to pass on this message that staff want to remain employees of Barnet Council. This is not a reflection of the way we view your business. We hope that you will take our position into consideration in your ongoing discussions with Barnet Council.
