Jobs still at risk at Doncaster Council

Three hundred and fifty jobs are still at risk after Doncaster Council approved its budget amendments last night. The council has to save £30 million in the coming year, but says it hopes compulsary redundancies will be kept to a minimum.

Doncaster's Chief Exec explains Plans

The proposals leave us with about £550,000 still to save and we will be looking to address this with the unions by improving attendance and reducing our staff sickness rate, reducing the need for agency workers and to reinstate limited pay protection for those taking lower graded jobs.

– Doncaster Council’s Chief Executive, Jo Miller
