10,000 Jobs To Go In Wales As Excess Government Staff Let Go

Assembly jobs axe warning
May 24 2007
by Martin Shipton, Western Mail
THE main union representing Assembly Government staff is warning of policy failures if planned job cuts go ahead.
According to the PCS, administration budgets have been slashed, with senior managers forced to reduce staffing numbers to mirror the efficiency savings implemented by the UK Government which will see 104,000 civil service posts cut, of which
10,000 will be cut from civil service departments in Wales.
In July last year, Rhodri Morgan denied a claim by the unions that 1,200 jobs would be axed, despite this figure appearing in an Assembly Human Resources briefing.
Today PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka will tell the Wales TUC conference, “We understand plans to cut staff numbers are well advanced and the numbers are significant.
“With the Assembly taking on new legislative powers, which will result in additional workloads for Assembly staff, we question the rationale in cutting staff numbers when there are so many uncertainties ahead.

With these kinds of numbers coming down after Gordon is "safely" in No. 10 it seems that the miracle of created government jobs to fuel HPI-MEW is coming to a sticky end. :o

And you can guarantee that no one will notice the difference once they are all gone, which makes you wonder what they were employed to do in the first place.

True

but it will have an impact on thier pockets... which we will notice eventually.

And then after that, how many of the then excess senior managers will be cut?

Hum. Bob Burgess in 'The Southern Reporter' tells me that 29 are to go from the swish Jobcentre in Galashiels, and they're looking to jettison 39 catchpolls from The Revenue and Customs in Hawick and Gala. Down Borders way even a lowest-grade biro-wrangler's pay is a king's ransom, and public servants e.g. postmen live like lord's b@5tards, compared to their urban compadres, so it is significant, in a thinly-spread peasantry of just over 110 thousand.

There's pie in the sky to look forward to, though, in the unlovely shape of the Scottish Public Pensions Agency, which is being relocated to the area by imperial decree (well, OK, Wee Fat Jack said "make it so.."). Doubtless to be staffed by Edinburgher Civil Servants commuting from their London-price city gaffs on the reinstated Waverley Line, which will end right at the front door.
