I have a Skip whose performance and attitude is poor. A while ago her High D Manager tried to tackle a specific problem (rudeness to an Admin), but was given bad HR advice and so did not follow agency procedures properly by ensuring that the Skip had Union support in what was deemed a formal meeting about that rudeness. We just wanted to give the Skip a written warning. The Skip then took out a grievance against the Manager, part of which had to be upheld. I then had to get another Manager to be the Skip's Manager. The first Manager feels upset about what happened, and perceives that the Skip is now 'untouchable' and gets away with murder.
Now another DR of that first Manager reports that the Skip is vocally anti-managment, e.g. throws away management memos with instructions, stating that she is not going to follow these.
I am guessing that MT advice is that we cannot do anything with that information unless the peer is willing to stand by that claim and to allow Managers to discuss that behaviour openly with the Skip. Any thoughts?
