COSC Coaches – Response to statements made about them to membership

Mar 31, 2021 | Resources

The BSCA have become aware of the statement below being circulated by the professional coaches of City of Oxford SC top counteract rumours allegedly being perpetuated by those we have referred to previously.

Its content is self-explanatory and it is worrying that said staff have felt it necessary to circulate such clarification. Much of this is domestic in nature but the generic nature of the concerns arising are something  coaches across the country have experienced from time to time and there is a wider general workplace story emerging from this for coaches elsewhere.

As a reminder, the BSCA alerted all, that said staff had been suspended after raising serious health & safety concerns, which have been ignored by the employer. This matter has escalated but we cannot say more for breaching confidentiality. An SGM has been called for tomorrow evening (1st April 2021) where matters will be resolved either way and we may be in a position to report further.
