Street Scene ballot result : Massive “In-House” vote – Barnet UNISON
On 15 March 2017, I attended Barnet Councils Environment Committee where an outsourcing decision was to be discussed.
You can view the meeting online here https://youtu.be/Y24Lm5s-afM
In the meeting one councillor referred to a staff consultation in which only 15 out of over 400 staff responded.
The next day Barnet UNISON Street Scene reps decided to carry out our own consultation.
This time we gave Street Scene staff the opportunity to vote for the In-house option something which had been omitted from the consultation.
In just three days we had 279 responses the results were as follows:
243 staff ticked Strongly Support Street Scene Services run fully by In-House staff.
243 staff ticked Strongly Opposed all other options.
1 member of staff ticked Strongly Support Barnet Group running the service and employing all of the staff.
There were 35 spoilt ballot papers.
Now we wait until Thursday 11 May 2017 to hear their fate for our members working in Street Scene.
