Becstarr : Enterprise bargaining begins, childcare support ahoy?

Today the union had the first EB (enterprise bargaining) meeting to start to establish a Log of Claims about things the membership would like included. Plenty of issues were raised, and one I spoke about was (with Dan's advice) childcare support. Quite a number of people were interested in family-friendly policies and practices (parental and carer leave, flexible hours, improved return-to-work etc). Dan's suggested a discussion-lunch soon for interested parties, so mail me if you want in or have ideas!
