Humberside jobs may go

Withdrawal of 1,200 redundancy notices by Humberside Council
does not guarantee people jobs in new unitary authorities, the
council has warned.

It issued 90-day notices to 1,200 staff just before Christmas as
a ‘precautionary’ measure, since the council will cease to exist
from April.

The withdrawal followed advice from the Department of
Environment that the notices were unnecessary.

East Riding Council, one of the four to replace Humberside, said
it intended to offer a job to everyone covered by statutory
transfer. A spokesperson for North Lincolnshire declined to
comment, saying budgets had not yet been set. No one from North
East Lincolnshire or Hull was available for comment.
