Oldham Council consults staff over potential redundancies

Oldham Council consults staff over potential redundancies image

Oldham Council has warned the equivalent of more than 65 full time jobs could be lost as part of proposals to save £20m in 2017/18.

The council has launched a staff and trade union consultation over the budget plans, which also includes funding being stopped for a number of services and new ways for the council to generate income.

Cllr Abdul Jabbar, deputy leader of Oldham Council, said: ‘We are now formally consulting with staff and trade unions over potential redundancies.

‘This is a regrettable but unavoidable consequence largely due to the continuing cuts that are being made to local government funding.’

Cllr Jabbar added that the consultation did not mean any final decision had been made by the council.
