Budget consultation – process

Understandably members are confused between the statutory 30 day notice period and the consultation process.


The statutory process started on 7 January which means some staff could receive redundancy notices on 7 February. However others could receive them later as their restructures move at a different pace.


Consultation has begun across the service areas, further updates will be provided by our Officers representing members facing redundancy.
