Cutting-edge Union

It must be time for some pointless idle gossip again.

Many (okay, one anonymous person) might be wondering what happened to the staff of Aberystwyth and their key-cutting nightmare that I covered in an earlier post:

Staff in an Assembly office in Aberystwyth have been asked to sign for pedestal keys; with a penalty of £22 if lost. This local policy has been as welcome as a wet-weekend in Cardigan Bay, and the union have advised staff not to sign for keys. Instead, meetings were instigated to convince management of the worthwhile idea of attaching keys to the security pass which is issued to all Assembly staff. This has not been adopted. The union is concerned that this local initiative will spread Wales-wide. What will staff be asked to pay for next?
You'll be pleased to hear that thanks to the Trade Union and their intense talks with management, the charge will not now be introduced. What a good example of the union working with local management for mutual benefit.

Who ever said the union is powerless and a damp squib??

Next week:

Union negotiates with management and succeeds in allowing staff to use three sheets of toilet paper, per person, for each trip to the loo.

I don't get this post. Are you saying its not a good thing the trade union has succeeded in ensuring their members will not face a penalty charge of £22? I would be thankful if i was working there?

I think there are better ways a union can spend their time on.
