Asia many of you will know on Thursday the finane and resources committee agreed to amend the report on the ADM, shortly after the meeting the following email was sent to members.

At today's Finance & Resources Committee the following Motion submitted by the Labour and the SNP councillors on the committee was passed.

the Committee Agrees to

1.Terminate the procurement process without a contract award.

2. To approve the saving of £782,000 for 2012/13 from Corporate Governance to be met from vacancy management to secure a balances budget.

3. instructs the Director of Corporate Governance to consult with the relevant Trades Unions and the wider workforce seeking their views on the future direction of the service and report to this committee with options for how future years savings can be achieved in the absence of the ADM Project.

While it has been passed it has been referred to full council on the 4th of April.

This motion if ratified at the council will bring to an end the Alternative Delivery Model and the attempts to outsource significant services and staff within the council.

UNISON Aberdeen City thanks all of those Elected representative's who supported our call today for the ADM to be scrapped and we look forward to the 4th of April and hope that the Full Council ratifies this important decision.
