Cambridge: Time Off For Tour de France
Cambridgeshire County Council's being asked to give staff leave, next summer, to watch the Tour de France.
Cambridgeshire Lib Dems want the county council to give their full-time staff flexible working to allow them to attend the Tour de France when it passes through Cambridge and South Cambs next year.
They've told Heart, 'as the race is due to visit the area on Monday, July 7, it could be difficult for full-time workers to take time off to watch.'
Cambridgeshire County Council staff and managers should be given flexible arrangements to attend the event, they say. And they want the county council to encourage other businesses to do the same.
Councillor Ian Manning, who represents Cambridge's East Chesterton on the county council said: "This is a unique opportunity for the people of Cambridgeshire and it would be a real shame if they were to miss out on witnessing this historic event when flexible working could allow them to attend.
"If you'd been working on this for the good part of a year, to secure it for Cambridge, and then you don't get to go an see it, it's not really fair on those staff.
"I hope the county council and other businesses across Cambridgeshire will find ways to allow their staff to enjoy the event and be part of history in the making."
The Council's told us its got a flexible working policy, but staff should talk to managers.
