Following two years of campaigning USU members at Liverpool Council are celebrating a win with Council voting that CEO Kiersten Fishburn work towards ending the partnership and the Liverpool Services Alliance.
It has been over two years since USU members at Liverpool commenced their campaign to have no part of Propel at Liverpool City Council.
GREAT WIN FOR USU MEMBERS
The USU was very pleased with the outcome of the February 2017 Council meeting where Council voted that CEO Kiersten Fishburn work towards ending the partnership and the Liverpool Services Alliance.
The Union acknowledges that there will be a transitional period and commits to work with Council during this period to ensure the best outcomes for our members.
We would also like to thank:
The USU members from all areas who worked tirelessly during the campaign attending rallies, meetings, getting petitions signed and supporting the USU team.
The Councillors of Liverpool City Council, both past and present, who listened to the viewpoints and issues of our members and acted on our concerns.
The Liverpool Community who actively supported our members.
And finally the new management team of Kiersten Fishburn, Tina Sangiuliano and Hiba Soueid who listened to Alliance staff and did not dismiss their concerns but rather worked with us to improve the working environment.
Time to celebrate
There were, of course, those who tried to put barriers in front of us and treat USU members in a deplorable and demoralising way. Let’s just celebrate that those individuals no longer have an impact on the workers of Liverpool City Council.
