On Wednesday the 11th March almost 300 USU members from Liverpool City Council attended a stop work meeting. Members had the opportunity to hear from General Secretary Graeme Kelly.

Liverpool City Council employees stopped work for an hour today to highlight their concerns over a proposal to outsource the management of council services to a private operator. USU General Secretary Graeme Kelly addressed the members.
