It has been widely reported that Northamptonshire County Council are fast approaching insolvency. The council have mismanaged their finances and are now failing to meet a number of their basic statutory duties.
The council’s employees have been badly let down along with the wider community by both the incompetent leadership of the council and by a government who has stopped properly funding local authorities.
The GMB Union is here to stand alongside staff during the difficult period and we are calling on the government to immediately step in to save jobs and protect vital services before the administrators arrive and put up the ‘For Sale’ boards.
