Government funding cuts have left many of your employers considering drastic reductions in staffing levels. Some may be trying to get round their duty to consult with you by dividing the workforce up and holding consultations in separate worksites or departments. This advice is designed to help you in these situations, as well as advising you of your employers obligations to inform and consult on mass redundancies more generally. As well as advising you of the legal position it gives guidance on what your branch should be doing through the consultation and negotiation process.
Attached is a policy statement drawn up by the Greater London Regional Council Officers which aims to provide guidance to branches, activists and members in responding to the many and varied attacks that are now being placed on public services by Government policy.
