Seems the staff at South Tyneside Homes have played a blinder by awarding themselves an extra day’s holiday, with full pay.
This con was orchestrated under the guise of ‘Celebrating Success’ following the Audit Commission’s recommendation that they be awarded two stars. The Board were asked to approve this one off extra day’s holiday for all staff and it will now be tagged on to the Christmas and New Year holidays.
Mr Monkey can’t help wondering that these ‘celebrations’ are a bit premature especially as they have yet to deliver the Decent Homes programme. If early indications are anything to go by it’s far from certain that they will get it right, just ask those poor folks who have had their homes ‘improved’.
Do yourselves a favour and put your celebration on hold, at least until you’ve delivered the goods.
