Up to 90 jobs could go in the Scottish Borders following a review, according to the union that represents staff there.
Scottish Borders Council is being asked to look at the running of its technology department. But one of the options would mean jobs going from Newtown St Boswells to Edinburgh. Jenny Longden reports
The Unite Union warns 80 Scottish Borders Council jobs could be transferred from Newtown St Boswells to Edinburgh.
The Council says a statement on the proposals should be given in early April:
"We have undertaken a review of our current ICT arrangements.
On 2 April, a private report will be presented to Council and we should be able to provide a statement on the proposals thereafter.
As always, staff and Unions have been briefed ahead of the report being considered by Council".
A Union official in the Borders warns that his members are ready to fight plans to switch 80 jobs to Edinburgh from Newtown St Boswells.
A review has found that a technology service at Scottish Borders Council is no longer fit for purpose, and recommends a joint arrangement with the City of Edinburgh Council.
It's understood that employees at the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) service were given the findings of a review on Tuesday.
The Union Union believe this could mean that 80 jobs in the department will relocate to Edinburgh.
Regional officer for Unite Union, Tony Trench, told ITV Border:
"Members are furious at the way they have been treated.
They don't want to go to Edinburgh City, many were born and bred in the Borders, they live here.
Where does it stop? This could be the beginning of the end of Scottish Borders Council."
