* Staff facility time and cost - This information is not held. The council does have a facilities/time off agreement in place. However, information regarding time taken off by trade union officials in
accordance with this agreement is not centrally recorded. Details may, in some instances, be informally noted by managers for management purposes but this is not done routinely across the organisation. In addition, some trade union activities undertaken by union representatives are not covered by this agreement. In summary, the council does not formally record the amount of paid staff time spent working on behalf of trade unions. As a result, the council is unable to provide you with the information you are seeking.
RWB Response say’s “we would certainly want to no what the civil servants are doing as they are being paid by the public and the transparency is needed. Its not uncommon for council staff to bunk off or be lazy now is it. (un heard of don’t be so silly)
