Stopwork meeting at Bigge Park: About 200 Liverpool Council staff are addressed by United Services Union general secretary Graeme Kelly and USU organiser Sandi Morthen. The stopwork was held this morning.

At least 200 Liverpool Council staff took part in a stopwork meeting at Bigge Park this morning, says the United Services Union, which represents local government workers.

A spokesperson for the union said a number of motions were passed at the meeting including a vote of no confidence in the CEO, Mr Carl Wulff.

The union, which says it is trying to to highlight their concerns over a proposal to outsource the management of council services to a private operator, is going to the Industrial Relations Commission this afternoon, to lodge its claim that the council management is breaching the requirement under the award to consult with staff about major changes.

The union will also argue that any decision should be put on hold for a few weeks, until after a DSC_0922freedom of information request is responded to by council.
