Council rejects 400 job loss claims 10.02.16

DONEGAL County Council has rejected claims that 400 local authority jobs are at risk as a result of downsizing by Irish Water.
The council has a 12-year contract with the utility company but concerns were raised this week that some local authority positions could go.
Donegal County Council issued a statement yesterday saying there is "no proposal to reduce jobs by 400 and no proposals for compulsory redundancies in Donegal".
"Following the announcement by Irish Water of its business plan in October 2015 management and the unions nationally have been in discussion under the aegis of the Workplace Relations Commission to ensure a managed approach to any reductions in jobs across the country initially for the period 2016 and 2017," the statement noted.
"When these discussions have been concluded at a national level the council will be informed of the outcome. The council will be making no further comment pending the outcome of the national discussions," it concluded.
