Morale of staff at Brent Town Hall has hit a deep thumping low. You can hear staff members grumbling, moaning and venting their concerns for their futures at the Town Hall on a daily basis.
In his newsletter to staff, Brent Council’s Chief Executive Gareth Daniel has admitted that the new Improvement and Efficiency Plan will result in at least 300 job losses (10% of the Council’s workforce). The Council has already issued redundancy notices to staff in school support services and redundancies are planned in children’s centres. This inevitably will have an effect on our Council services which are already underperforming under the Lib Dems.
Council employees are wondering who is next for the chop as fear stalks the Town Hall.
The Leader of the Council’s Labour Opposition, Councillor Ann M John, OBE, said:
“Front life staffs are set to pay a high price for the LibDems’ failure”.
