Could you answer the following questions please:

3. Could you confirm that all Kingdom employees have been employed on full contracts and do not have zero-hour contracts working on behalf of the local authority?

4. Could you confirm whether Kingdom Service Group recognises the union and whether their employees are given the option of joining a union when commencing employment?

5. Could you confirm whether the local authority will allow Kingdom Services Group to use Flexi-Workers (again zero hour contracts)?

Yours faithfully,

Dear sir or madam

 

We do not hold or have not held a contract with Kingdom Services.

 

We researched the company and what they were offering but it was decided
not to acquire their services.

 

We have never entered into any form of contract or employment agreement
with them.

 

I hope this information is of assistance to you.  However, if you feel
that the Council have failed to deal with your request for information
correctly, you can request that the matter is reviewed in accordance with
the Authority’s Complaints Procedure. Details of this procedure can be
obtained from all Council offices or our website ([1]www.tendringdc.gov.uk
).

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

 

FOI Compliance Team (complaints), Information Commissioner's Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.

 

Regards
