Clarification of Unison Inverclyde position on Soft Trawl


Following the article in the Council’s Insider magazine for employees we would like to clarify our position.

UNISON Inverclyde is opposed to ALL forms of public sector cuts including jobs being released through voluntary severance.

However the branch accepts that for practical reasons ONLY, a trawl of this nature may be a helpful tool in the avoidance of compulsory redundancies.

The branch WOULD certainly be opposing this trawl were it not for the fact that there is a risk of compulsory redundancies during the next budget process.”
