Over 150 workers from Sandwell’s Children’s Services have signed a UNISON petition calling upon the Government Minister Edward Timpson MP, to keep the service as a Public Sector Service.
Tony Barnsley, Joint Branch Secretary stated,
“We want to give Government Inspectors a clear message that workers in Children’s are committed to improve the service as council workers. There is simply no evidence to show privatisation will make it any better, but real concern that introducing the profit motive in protecting children can only bring additional problems”.
Please see the attached UNISON letter to Edward Timpson MP, the Minister for Children’s & Families.
