RETIREMENT OF 70 COUNCIL WORKERS TO PUT COUNTY COUNCIL UNDER PRESSURE

first_imgA total of 70 Donegal County Council workers will retire early next year – and they will not be replaced.In a bid to cut back on the employee wage bill, Donegaldaily.com understands only a small number of the positions may be kept open.The positions come from a general cross section of council departments including clerical and engineering. A council source said the retirements are a ‘catch 22’ situation for the local authority.“The number of retirements is around 70 and they will be going in the New Year.“There’s no question it will cut back on the wage bill and that will be a welcome relief.“The problem is that if these positions are not going to be filled then the remaining workers will be expected to bit up the slack left behind by the retiring workers. “Many workers are already finding it difficult to keep on top of their workload without having to look after some else’s job,” he said.EndsRETIREMENT OF 70 COUNCIL WORKERS TO PUT COUNTY COUNCIL UNDER PRESSURE was last modified: October 1st, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County Councillast_img read more
