Staff morale ‘at rock bottom’ in CWaC council

A COUNCIL worker from Ellesmere Port says morale is at an all-time low after new terms and conditions were announced last week.

Last week, council leader Mike Jones appeared on regional TV news to defend the move. But the employee we spoke to claims he will lose £50 a week under the new terms and slammed the ‘hypocrisy’ of council leader Mike Jones – who will not suffer any drop in salary.

The Streetscene team worker refused to be named, but insisted ‘morale is at rock bottom’ since news council cost saving would hit salaries.

He said: “Steve Robinson got a one-off payment of £60,000 just for overseeing the local elections.

“These two hypocrites are telling us to take pay cuts. Imagine how much it would save if they took even a 5% pay cut.”

My comment: Whilst that's an excellent idea unfortunately turkeys don't vote for Xmas.
