    They're Conservatives, so not answerable to anyone

    Surprising lack of interest in the council's alleged activities. Fake news?

    Or maybe mid level corruption is almost accepted in local councils these days so no body is shocked

    Seems like a strange letter, anyway. Surely even a slight suspicion of fraud is a job for Inspector Knacker of the Yard, not Unison.

    It's probably best to wait to see how things pan out than to get your nob out over it just yet.

    It would probably be of more interest and clout if it wasn't made by a union, term glass houses spring to mind.

    However, having chased up a couple of friends who work for SCC, one of whom is in the union, they seemed baffled by the whole thing and accusation. The lad in the union has received no communication from the union and knows about the issue due to scc updates to staff.

    The staff have apparently had their first cost of living rise in a few years, all agreed and signed off by unions and back dated to April.

    The SCC chief has emailed all staff, baffled by these union allegations which seem to be attributed by an independent investigation about process of procurement, not fraud. The investigation is historic and not new news apparently.

    My friends were confused and didn't understand it, so I have not got a clue what its all about. It would be interesting to hear and understandable explanation what this is about.
