Cheshire West and Chester Council staff payments to be cut

THOUSANDS of council staff will see their allowances and overtime payments slashed in a bid to save money.

The 7,000 employees at Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) are being consulted on plans to overhaul the terms and conditions of their employment.

My comment: I bet the cuts don't have much impact on the pay and conditions of senior officers or their ability to swan around en mass at taxpayers expense to none events like the LGA conference etc. Neither do I expect the councillors to cut their own allowances, which swallows up 25% of what they are trying to save. Turkeys don't vote for Christmas and boy are some of our councillors turkeys.
