COUNCIL workers in Wales are each taking up to three weeks off sick a year, according to figures released yesterday.

Despite assurances from local authorities in the past year that they were working to improve staff absence levels, more than one million days were again taken off sick by Welsh local authority workers in the last financial year.

The average number of days taken off per employee actually increased, from 11.3 last year to 11.6 this year, suggesting no progress has been made in tackling staff sickness.

That figure is far higher than average absence levels seen in the private sector 7.2 days a year, according to the latest report by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. In one Welsh council the average number of sick days per employee was 14.8, the equivalent of three working weeks.

Below is a letter sent out by Blaenau-Gwent Council to all employees
