Despite efforts to minimise job reductions, every member of staff at four of Coventry’s most popular visitor attractions has been offered voluntary redundancy.
Culture Coventry, the charitable trust which runs Coventry Transport Museum, Herbert Art Gallery, Lunt Roman Fort and Priory Visitor Centre, has made the offer to all 87 staff after reducing it's budget by £100,000.
Employees were given until May 5 to accept the new terms or leave , but nobody has left as a result of the changes, despite many facing a £3,000 a year loss.
The organisation has not ruled out further job losses on top of those who leave voluntarily.
It has also opted to amend the contracts of all employees to scrap ‘flexitime’ and remove extra pay for weekend shifts, which the chief executive of the charity said was 'unfortunate' but necessary. He also said staff would still be able to request flexible working if they had a genuine need.
