NEW SHEFFIELD PAY CUT DEAL HEADS FOR DISPUTE

Public sector union Unison has voiced dissatisfaction with plans by Sheffield city council to repeat last year's ground breaking pay cut for job security deal, the Financial Times reports (p6).

Employees last year accepted a 3.25% cut in pay in return for a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies and an extra seven days' holiday, but Unison warns they are unlikely to accept a further deal this year of a 2.75% cut with no extra holiday.

The union said the first cut had been accepted on the basis it had been going to resolve budget problems but now appeared to have been for nothing, the FT reports.

Last year's deal saved Sheffield £7 million but it is looking for a further £9m saving in employee costs this year.
