Many of you will be aware of the managers’ review that is currently under way, and the formal consultation which ends on 31st October. There are 213 managers in posts from LG11 to Heads of Service who are within scope.
We would encourage everyone who is within the scope of this review to respond to this consultation, and similarly, we would welcome views from any of our members who find themselves within the scope of this review.
Angus Council is currently undergoing significant change which will see the council reduce further in size. We know that our manager members are proud local government employees, and understand the need for properly funded public services. The last thing we would like to see is anyone finding themselves without a post and for services to suffer.
It seems almost inevitable that the council may find themselves in a position where compulsory redundancies are considered and we will robustly defend any member who wishes to stay in their post (or even a redesigned post) yet find that they are under consideration for redundancy.
Please make sure you feed into the consultation, and let us know if you have any views that you feel we need to be aware of.
Now, more than ever it is important to ensure that we have your up to date contact details, so please contact the office on 01382 225491 to update telephone, email, or home address details to ensure you receive any updates. Additionally, if you have received this briefing and you feel that you are not within the scope of this review, then please contact our office on the number above and update us with your job title.
We endeavour to ensure you receive information that relates specifically to your workplace and job. The easiest and quickest way we can do that is if the information we hold about you is as accurate as possible.
If you would like to become involved with the GMB please contact us for further information. We are always trying to encourage new reps from all backgrounds, and we would particularly like to encourage members from under-represented groups to become involved in your workplaces.
