Wirral Council: Trade Unions Agree to Labour Cabinet’s Decision to Change Severance Scheme

Wirral Council’s Cabinet┬ádecided to reject Chief Executive Graham Burgess’ advice that Wirral Council’s severance scheme should be reduced to the minimum required by law. Councillors opted instead for a multiplier of 1.8 (uncapped) compared to the previous scheme’s multiplier of 2.2 (reports for this agenda item).

A trade union representative gave councillors credit for not going for the statutory scheme. He said the enhanced scheme would help to bring forward volunteers for redundancy. Joe Taylor┬áthat had the Cabinet followed the advice to move to just fulfilling their legal requirements then they would’ve balloted their members for strike action.
