A report to councillors from managing director John Foster said the council faced a£1.78 million budget shortfall.
He recommended that 150 staff from the former economic development and transportation department be made redundant and that the policy of awarding six and two-thirds added years to pensions for retiring or redundant staff over 50 be scrapped.
The report, to be presented yesterday, also recommended the 45 weeks redundancy pay be reduced to 30 weeks and that new employment contracts should not contain protection clauses.
T&G district secretary Mike Brider said members were very angry over the plans. 'They feel betrayed by the council which only recently gave a commitment that there would be no compulsory redundancies,' he said.
