LDL proves it is out of touch with 10th anniversary barbecue
I'm all in favour of employers praising their staff when they do a good job.
But Liverpool Direct Limited risks showing just how out of touch with reality it has become, by throwing a big barbecue to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Around 400 guests have been invited to the bash at the Marriott Hotel.
The council and LDL have tried to defend the event saying that joint venture partner BT will be picking up the tab, hardly the point.
How will the 1,200 workers who will end up losing their job at the city council feel to see such an event being held? Once more LDL seems to be showing that we are not all in it together.
So far LDL has escaped any job cuts, although the minutes of LDL's May staff forum minutes ominously state: "LDL has offered a substantial price reduction to Liverpool City Council and the reduction will have an impact on LDL.
"The exact impacts of the reduction are yet to be identified."
If LDL is forced to cut jobs, having held this type of event in advance of any announcement will look insensitive to say the least.
