Motions

The following motion has been received in accordance with Procedure Rule 16, from Councillor Andy Boddington, on behalf of the Liberal Democrat Group:

 

There is growing interest among many organisations about introducing a four day week. Pilot trials and research show that a four day week improves staff wellbeing and innovation, without reducing productivity. Reducing staff travel to work will also contribute to national and council commitments to progress towards a zero carbon expectation.

 

This motion does not propose shutting council offices three days in seven but to give most staff flexibility in which four weekdays they work. It does not apply to Shropshire Council employees in schools.

 

Shropshire Council must continue to operate public facing services Monday to Friday, as well as maintaining emergency and essential cover 24x7. But this should not be an impediment to introducing a four day week norm for staff and increasing use of flexible hours.

 

This council requests the chief executive and an appropriate cabinet member to examine the case for a four day working week with a view to reporting to cabinet and council by February 2020 on the feasibility of a four day week norm for council staff.
