Staff cuts at the council

The first thing Steve and Nigel knew about the scale of the cuts was a letter from one of the council officers and reading the Bath Chronicle article

http://www.thisisbath.co.uk/news/100-plus-council-staff-face-redundancy/article-1656611-detail/article.html

What is worse the Conservative controlled council got it all wrong, sending out letters to those affected, then having to withdraw them as the redundnacy payments were wrong. Surely with something so important someone should have checked properly.

There are many areas that the council is not doing well, due to the amount of staff they use, street cleaning is one of these. So what is happening ? more staff are being cut, how are those remaining going to do the job ? This is one of the questions we will be trying to find out.

We feel for all those staff that start the new year out with the threat of redundancy.
