Agenda Note on the transfer of jobs in Active Schools and Outdoor Learning from the City Council to Leisure & Culture Dundee. This is a major change and will have a major impact on the lives of these workers if it goes through.
An Agenda Note is a brief way of reporting to a Dundee City Council committee. I was appalled that this proposed major change was being put forward in a mere six paragraphs. Those six paragraphs do not tell us how many jobs will be impacted by these proposals. Bizarrely given the focus of the SNP Council on cutting £23 million there are no details of the financial implications of these proposals. This is not good enough. You can see the Agenda Note above.
I asked for an assurance that before any final decisions are made that there will actually be a proper report to the council. Proper governance leads to better decisions. I was pleased that the Administration agreed to my request, such a big change should not be made on such a flimsy prospectus.
