UNISON members at Moray Council will now be aware of the statement issued yesterday (21st November) by Cllr Alexander in response to the comments made in the media by Cllr Wilson. At this point in time Moray UNISON has not been made aware of the budget cuts being proposed by the Council however, we will update members with the position as soon as possible.
Please find below Moray UNISON Branch press release in response to Cllr Alexander’s statement:
Having considered the statement from Councillor Alexander which was issued this morning, UNISON can concur with his assessment that the comments made by Councillor Wilson have indeed “spread fear and alarm”. UNISON has already been approached by members deeply concerned for their jobs and it is regrettable that this information is in the public domain before unions and affected staff have been provided with the detail.
