Unison has accused Redditch BC of delivering a 'damning snub' to staff over its plans to 'sign away' a scheme leading to immediate pay cuts from next February, reports The Birmingham Post (p5).
Following a decision by councillors to end salary protection for council employees in August, staff were given the chance to agree or disagree with it. The scheme was to be scrapped to save more than£40,000.
Unison claims a majority of workers voted to keep the scheme but council chief executive Katherine Kerswell has refused to reveal how people voted for it.
Under council plans manual and clerical workers will have their salaries re-evaluated. Jobs will be put on a new merged salary system, with some workers facing an immediat cut as the salary protection scheme will not be in place.
