Middlesbrough Council spends £17m in six years on making staff redundant

Almost £17m has been spent on making staff at Middlesbrough Council redundant in the past six years.

A report to be presented to the council’s Executive tomorrow shows that 869 staff have been made redundant since 2009/2010.

Of the £16,977,600 the authority has paid out, around £15.75m was spent on voluntary redundancy or early retirement schemes.

These schemes, according to the report, have been an “effective mechanism to avoid compulsory redundancy sitatuations arising” – with 84% of all redundancies since 2011 being on a voluntary basis.
