CONWY STAFF MAY TAKE UNPAID LEAVE TO SOLVE CASH CRISIS

Staff at Conwy CBC have suggested taking a week's unpaid leave to help make ends meet, reports The Western Mail (p1).

Officials will propose that staff - right up to director and chief officer level- should leave their desks for five days without pay.

The proposal follows weeks of arguments in which trades unions said they would not accept staffing cuts to solve the authority's financial problems.

A joint statement by the unions and council yesterday said: 'Following constructive negotiations, both sides will recommend that staff formerly described as 'white collar' - take five days' unpaid leave, thus providing the authority with sums required to meet the present defecit and avoid the proposed redundancies.'

It is thought that as many as 4,000 staff could take the leave under a collective agreement.
