Life of Ryley



COUNCIL axe-man Kim Ryley is on familiar territory as he oversees plans to cut 1,000 jobs at Cheshire East council. The authority is shedding

a fifth of its 5,500 workforce in a bid to reduce a £140m wage bill. It's similar to what happened at Shropshire Council in 2011, with. Ryley at the helm,

when all 6,500 members• of staff were "sacked" and re-employed on lower salaries and new terms.

Redundancy Challenge

The Branch will be continuing its challenge to the Council's underpayment of redundancy payments by taking all claims received to the county court.
