Having received my FOI request from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) I can confirm that ERYC is indeed endangering Refuse Collectors well being.
Firstly I must correct a mistake on my part in ERYC Endanger Refuse Collectors Well Being I stated:
“ERYC has increased the workload of Refuse Collectors without undertaking appropriate risk assessments.”
This should have stated:
“ERYC in July plans to increase the workload of Refuse Collectors without undertaking appropriate risk assessments.”
My apologies to ERYC for any inconvenience my mistake caused.
Embracing Harmonious Relations
As a Consultant to move forward what may appear to be an entrenched, unresolvable situation I place importance on embracing a more conducive, harmonious, and beneficial way of working for all concerned.
I will always endeavour to offer such an approach to ERYC. Of course, it is up to them if they choose to work with or against me.
With this in mind, instead of my regular approach of publishing first, I believe it to be reasonable to offer a meeting with ERYC to discuss the issues identified by myself and my Refuse Collection Advisor.
I would like to offer Caroline Lacey, ERYC Chief Executive, and Jonathan Owen ERYC Leader an in-person meeting with the following present:
- A Senior ERYC Office with the required knowledge of Refuse Collection
- The Portfolio Holder for Refuse Collection
- My Refuse Collection Advisor
