Dear Wrexham County Borough Council,

Value of all contributions made to any union activity -- other items include free use of rooms etc.
Could you provide a total for the number of meetings and the total length of time of these meetings. Where meting have taken place with senior managers do you put a value on the time.
Ideally these should be broken down by each union if not possible global figures will suffice.

Dear Ms Jordan

Further to my acknowledgement of your request, in order for us to process your application, can you please clarify your question:

"Value of all contributions made to any union activity -- other items include
free use of rooms etc."

Can you explain what you mean by this and what information you are including in this? Does the value relate to any other contributions besides staff time?

I look forward to hearing from you

Dear foi,
I am looking for a breakdown of the actual costs incurred or the value (ie if you give the use of an office 'free' what would the cost be if it was for an externally funded service provided by the Council

Yours sincerely,

Dear foi,

Thank you for your reply re Union Facilities; I am seeking clarity on the following--
You refer to staff being on secondment to the Unions -- what is the cost to the Council for this time -- I am assuming that there is a cost as you only refer to the Unions paying for administration.
I cannot understand why you cannot charge the unions for the office space -- the Unions are not part of WCBC and surely as a Council if the space was vacant you would move staff into the space.
The most astonishing element of your response is that there is no record of the number of meetings between the Council and Unions. I am therefore asking for the release of the minutes from the last two meetings that have taken place either with Council Members or Council officers,
Yours sincerely,

Jane Jordon
