We're urging all members to sign-up for and take part in the employee workshops being held around the county by Nottinghamshire County Council Chief Executive Anthony May.
These workshops are an opportunity for people to discuss their experiences of working at the Council. Management will also be seeking views on their plans to save £1 million by cutting staff terms and conditions.
We believe that changes to terms and conditions will inevitably have a negative effect on our members. This is a key opportunity to put our views and concerns directly to the Chief Executive of the Council.


There are three events around the county in August and September. If you want to go you need to book a place online using Eventbrite:

Thursday 16 August – Mansfield Central Library, 2pm to 4pm Eventbrite link

Friday 17 August – The Crossing Centre, Worksop, 9am to 11am Eventbrite link

Thursday 13 September– County Hall, West Bridgford, 2pm to 4pm Eventbrite link

Book soon in case the meetings start filling up
