Wirral councillors agree 2 new policies on attendance management and discipline
Councillors at Monday night’s Council meeting approved two Human Resources policies (apart from the Mayor who abstained and Cllr Pat Cleary who voted against). These were the Human Resources Policy Update (including revised Disciplinary Policy and Procedure) and the Attendance Management Policy.
Approval of the Attendance Management Policy led to this exchange between Conservative Leader Cllr Jeff Green and the Labour Chair of the Transformation and Resources Policy and Performance Committee Cllr Janette Williamson.

Cllr Jeff Green: Mr Mayor, am I allowed to ask a question on that particular item? I was just wondering as UNISON have written to me about this, I just wanted to know what the current position is.
Mayor Cllr Les Rowlands: Cllr Green, would you like to ask your question now?
Cllr Jeff Green: Yes Mr Mayor, the question is relatively straightforward. I’ve been written to, probably other colleagues have been written to by UNISON around the Attendance Management Policy and so on and I just wondered whether the Chair can update us on where we are with that letter and our discussions with the trade unions?
Cllr Janette Williamson (Chair of the Transformation and Resources Policy and Performance Committee): Well, firstly Jeff you did have a chance to ask your question before but chose not to do so. You had a chance to ask a Chair’s question before but chose not to do so.
This went before the Committee and received all party approval when it went there. We did have a request from a member of UNISON beforehand to attend and for him to ask a question and he decided not to errm on the night of that. It’s been agreed by the Committee and passed by every Member.

Good on Pat Cleary for standing up to the intimidation and bucking the trend i.e. the trend towards being steamrollered by hideous, bullying and harassing senior officers used to getting their own way.
Your photo sums up Paul’s comment perfectly when he said
the trend towards being steamrollered by hideous, bullying and harassing senior officers used to getting their own way.
You couldn’t find two worse bullies in a playground full of bullies “Ankles” and the thing standing next to him that looks like him with a wig on.
Ps Is “Ankles doing his impression of “The Pretend Friend”?
Childish I know but no worse than them hiding reports and applauding asset stripping.
A crime by the way.
All aiding and abetting.
I always feel guilty that when I log into you….
So to speak.
That I am giving you a bad name.
I would just like to thank you for allowing me to vent my anger, rage and frustration about an organisation that is not right, open, honest or transparent.
It is like a diseased thing.
Something that thinks it is above the law.
They all know they don’t agree on things like a super director breaking the law and the legal department not doing honest legal actions and instead just pay people off and they all just do as they are told like numbskulls
I would love to know what goes through their heads not speaking up or standing down.
I digress John.
My comments are definitely my thoughts and words and and absolutely nobody else I do thank you sincerely.
The best example I can think of at this moment is when a supposed leading citizen and councilor said Wirral “Funny” Bizz was the worst scandal in his forty years and next meeting said the opposite.
He would be sacked and laughed out of town in the real world.
In answer to your question because I will follow up with a quote.
is doing what everybody else is doing, regardless of what is right
