United Kingdom - Dispute over redundancy pay continues - November 25, 2010

The PCS civil service union has criticised the government for refusing to support a proposal for changes to the redundancy compensation scheme that would provide better protection for lower paid workers. The government is pressing ahead with changes that would introduce new limits of 12 months’ pay for compulsory redundancy and 15 months’ pay for voluntary redundancy in the short term, with the prospect of a 21-month maximum for voluntary redundancy in the longer term (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 April, May, June, July-August and October 2010).
