20,000 Welsh Public Sector Jobs May Go, Warns Union

Recommended Posts

Only 20K - that is not even half of the public sector workers in Swansea.


MORE than 20,000 Welsh local government jobs could be lost as Treasury cut-backs begin to bite, a trade union warned last night.

Unison says its analysis of the UK Government’s plans to cut the national deficit would mean the loss of £404m in investment and 20,000 jobs.

The figures came on a day of claim and political counter- claim on the impact of last week’s Budget on the jobs market.

Data from the Office for Budget Responsibility, due to be published today, were brought forward, and suggested a total of 600,000 public sector jobs across the UK would go by 2015-16.

Unison’s head of local government affairs, Dominic MacAskill, said: “It is quite clear that we are at a crossroads between maintaining the welfare state and moving towards full marketisation of society, where we know the price of everything but the value of nothing.

“We need only look as far back as the pit closure programme of the 1980s to assess the damage that such job losses can have on communities in Wales.”

Is that all?

Doesn't sound enough.

I think all public sector need sacking and re-employing on terms the country can afford.

Was listening to some nonsense about the bbc and wages "being fair" etc this morning. Utterly bonkers to think paying anyone in the BBC more than 100k makes commercial sense for the licence payers.

OK we might not have jonathan ross titting about but hey, every cloud etc.
