HOME CARE STATEMENT
The following is the Statement issued to the trade unions at 3 pm on Thurs. 14th June 2007
No other details were shared with the trade unions at that time. The details would follow probably within the next week.
Management should apologise to its staff for the lack of information.
After leaving the meeting the trade unions were advised a press statement had already been given out and the Executive Director Tony Hunter would speak on local radio.
The trade unions are aware that this is an uncertain time for the Home Care Service and differing statements being issued by LCC are causing confusion.
We have asked for joint meetings with staff and as soon as there is more information we will contact our members.
