“Resident Satisfaction – Refuse and recycling remain the top 2 rated council services based on the latest Residents’ Perception Survey data from spring 2016. Recycling is at 73% saying the service is “good/excellent” – this is 6.8% above the London average. Refuse is at 77% saying “good/excellent”, 8.2% above the London average.”
Those are not the words of Barnet UNISON but data on Barnet Council web site.
The ‘top 2 rated council services’ they say.
On Wednesday 15 March 2017, at 6.30 pm Barnet Council Environment Committee will decide whether to either back their own loyal hard working staff or outsource them to another employer.
Barnet UNISON has been clear from the start that Street Scene services should and must stay in-house.
If the residents rate these services, and the senior officers who produce the data confirming this is true, then how could it be possible to outsource these services?
We won’t know until the report to be considered by Barnet Councillors will be published here five working days before the meeting.
I will be attending this meeting which is open to the public.
