To seek Cabinet approval for the proposed phased implementation of NEWydd's Modernisation Programme


Councillor Mullin introduced the report which provided details of the proposed operational transition plan for NEWydd Catering and Cleaning Ltd and outlined the phases of implementation which were required to achieve the targets for NEWydd’s Modernisation Programme.  


            The Chief Executive thanked the Chair of Council, who was observing the meeting, for agreeing to the special meeting to be due to the resolution being urgent and for expediency.  He explained the reasons for that requirement, which was so that exit payments could be protected.


            A number of questions were asked, and answered, on quality of food, the temporary meals provision, non-recyclable products and the new menu that would be available from January 2021.


            Members thanked all officers for the work undertaken to enable employee requests to be granted.




(a)       That the proposed phased implementation of NEWydd’s Modernisation Programme, and the changes to the school catering service, as detailed in the operational transition plan, be approved; and


(b)       That the release of employees who had applied for voluntary redundancy by 31st September 2020 to help facilitate the implementation of the new operating model be supported.
