Council Employees Take a Pay Cut to save Services
Very simple idea and can't believe it hasn't even been mentioned or considered. It's very simple, if all employees took a pay cut it would save certain services from closing and also save jobs. Here are examples
8000 employees, each one takes a £50 a month pay cut, so 1 employee for the year would be £600 times that by 8000 employees = £4.8 million pounds saved a year, times 3 for 3 years = £14.4 million
so that's how it works, and with all that saving surly that will save jobs and save certain services for 3 years? Now more math
£75 a month pay cut for 8000 employees would be £7.2 million a year, 3 years would be £21.6 million
£100 a month pay cut for 8000 employees would be £9.6 million a year, 3 years would be £28.8 million. Do you see where this is going. Another option is each BG level ( council scale of pay ) takes a certain pay cut on there annual salary ie Executives take a £150 a month pay cut, managers £100, supervisors £75, low paid staff £40, obviously I can't give you a number as I am unaware of who is what in the council but again can you see where this can go to avoid lost jobs and services.
Why the contribution is important
Simple, saves services and jobs if everyone pulls together to protect the council services and jobs.
