Suffolk Unison member speaks
"THE COUNCIL has decided to outsource nearly everything. The first thing we heard about it was in the local media a few days before the main council meeting that voted this through.
They want to reduce the workforce from 27,000 to a few hundred managers who will oversee the contracts. If we get outsourced we have no idea what will happen to our jobs, but it probably won't be good.
Once these jobs are gone they are gone. If they privatise these [services] they won't be coming back any time soon.
It seems there is a cabal of six or seven people in the council headed up by the chief executive Andrea Hill, (who is on over £200,000 a year) and Tory council leader Jeremy Pembroke. They must have been planning this for years.
When Hill arrived at the council she said people had to 'get real' and they were 'with her or out'."
