ACC CONF: STAFF COMMISSION MAINTAINS PRESSURE FOR COMPENSATION

The Staff Commission is continuing to press the government for mandatory procedures for the transfer of staff to new authorities under local government reorganisation, commission chairman Alan Atherton told the Association of County Councils conference today.

Some employees on the Isle of Wight 'are having to take decisions about their future without knowing the compensation terms they should get should they wish to retire early', said Mr Atherton.

The commission wanted more money to be made available for adequate compensation for staff who chose to take redundancy or retire. The government's proposed redundancy terms were not an acceptable basis of compensation, he said.

Mr Atherton was not confident of an early resolution. 'Last week I wrote again to the secertary of state for the environment reiterating our views. I await the result with interest but I have to say I am pessimistic about the outcome,' he said.
