A Meeting with Flint County Council Officials

On Monday, November 19th, Dilwyn Roberts-Young, UCAC General Secretary met with the Chief Executive,Colin Everett and the Director of Life Long Learning, Claire Homard at Flintshire County Council offices. 

The meeting was an opportunity to share concerns about education funding and the implications for salaries, conditions of service and job security for teachers working in Flintshire. The meeting was the latest in a series which have taken place with a number of authorities and which will continue to take place at a challenging time for the profession and the education system as a whole.

The meeting was timely as the authority launched a campaign the following day in which it called for fair funding for local government and for Flintshire County Council. Details of the campaign can be found at: www.flintshire.gov.uk/OurFlintshire19-20

Flintshire County Council is asking Welsh Government ‘to #BacktheAsk for £5.6m more funding for Flintshire’. According to the statement by the Chief Executive the authority needs a positive response from Welsh Government in order to ‘protect local services and keep Council Tax rises down.’
