New North Somerset Council Redundancy Policy - just as Council announce redundancies!

North Somerset Council have been consulting the trade unions on a new redundancy policy. UNISON, along with our teaching colleagues have submitted comments but have refused to agree to it.

The new policy puts a cap on the weekly pay used to calculate redundancy at twice the statutory rate or £760 per week - this will impact on staff on JM4 grades and above.

It also includes a matrix which will enable the council to select employees for redundancy. The matrix includes the following criteria: quantity and quality of work, skills and job knowledge, discipline and attendance, absence record, cost of redundancy, attitude and professionalism, and for supervisory / managerial levels of staff the additional criteria of self management and flexibility.
