A rift in the fellowship of the chamber

first_imgPrint Facebook LimerickNewsA rift in the fellowship of the chamberBy Alan Jacques – September 12, 2020 345 WhatsApp Adam Teskey, Fine Gael. Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHERE was evidence of a major rift between the six councillors of the Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District, who have always prided themselves on working together.Changing the venue for their monthly meeting from their base in Rathkeale to County Hall in Dooradoyle, appears to have been a bridge too far for some with serious cracks in the fellowship between council members being clearly visible.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Before this Tuesday’s meeting commenced, Fine Gael councillor Stephen Keary wanted to know why the meeting had been moved out of the Rathkeale office and if office staff had been consulted about the change of venue.He asked the council executive what they believed the risk was and who posed the risk if the meeting had been held in West Limerick.Cathaoirleach Adam Teskey (FG) refused to discuss the matter with his party colleague.“I’m not going there”, he said,  and refused to engage any further on the matter before the meeting started.Cllr Keary then left the council chamber.Cllr Teskey told council members that an email was sent to all councillors ten days earlier about the change of venue and nobody took issue with the change.”Over the last number of years we’ve had meetings all over the district in places such as Ballyhahill, Ballysteen and Pallaskenry. What’s the issue with having our meeting in the council chamber in Dooradoyle?” he asked.He explained that it was decided to hold the meeting in County Hall as it was a bigger venue, and made it easier for social distancing.Fianna Fáil councillor Kevin Sheahan said he felt the issue was being used for political advantage that the six members  were “not on the same page”.He went onto claim that he had been told by two “honourable” Fine Gael members that one of the six area representatives had alleged the other five members were working in opposition to him.Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien raised concerns over whispers in the municipal district of an “anti-Rathkeale” sentiment from some area representatives. He described it as the spread of “political misinformation” by one member.”I’d dance a jig down the middle of Rathkeale. I’ll go out there anytime,” Cllr O’Brien declared.Fianna Fáil councillor Bridie Collins felt it was an insult to council members to suggest the meeting was moved to a bigger venue for any other reason than health and safety grounds.Before the meeting concluded, councillors called for a solution to be found to the issue.“The six councillors need to put their heads together for the good of the community,” Cllr Sheahan said to Cathaoirleach Adam Teskey.”I can’t get a whip and make anyone carry out their mandate,” Cllr Teskey replied.”I am nominating you to get this sorted,” said Cllr O’Brien interjected.In a statement issued after leaving the meeting, Cllr Keary referred to the council chamber as being a democratic forum that is now “being run like a dictatorship”.“I worked long and hard with the community to have the Rathkeale area office retained and for the name of the town to be retained in the name of the municipal district. Now the elected representatives and the executive won’t even meet there for their monthly meetings. This is an insult to both the office staff and the people of Rathkeale,” he added.

Bullying at work is rife with one in five affected

first_imgBullying at work is rife with one in five affectedOn 8 Oct 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. More than one in five employees have been bullied at work at least onceduring the past year. This is one of the main findings of a survey of more than 3,500 staff in theUK by Mercer Human Resource Consulting, and if consistent would mean 1.5million workers suffered some form of bullying at work last year. The study also reveals that almost one in 10 employees report they have beenbullied on several occasions, while 2 per cent say they have been bullied sixor more times in the past year. Patrick Gilbert, head of organisational research and effectiveness atMercer, said: “At first glance, these numbers appear to be relatively low,but when extrapolated to the UK workforce, we are talking about vast amounts ofpeople. These findings indicate that well over 1.5 million workers could be thevictims of repeated bullying at work.” Bullying isn’t confined simply to employees lower down the organisationalhierarchy. The study finds that 24 per cent of middle managers and 17 per centof senior managers said they had been bullied at least once in the past year. Gilbert said: “The high rate of bullying among managers is a particulararea of concern. If managers are the victims of bullying, they are more likelyto bully the people they manage. The high rate of bullying across allorganisational levels indicates how entrenched this dysfunctional practice isin UK organisations.” There are few differences in the rate of bullying reported across age groupsor size of organisation. The study also finds that men and women are equally likely to report thatthey have been bullied during the past year. By Ross Wighamwww.mercerhr.com Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more
