Alderney States: Voluntary redundancy offered to workers

Alderney has agreed to offer its States workers redundancy after a critical report into the department's management.

An audit in July recommended changes including a review of the department's culture, management and structure.

Up to 12 members of staff - those nearing retirement age - will be able to take up the offer, which includes five weeks' pay for each year worked.

Trade unions and the States have agreed to the scheme.

Francis Simonet, chair of the Policy and Finance Committee, said the redundancy scheme would allow for a complete restructure and "introduce significant changes."

He said the restructure would be likely to improve the services Alderney States delivers.

The voluntary redundancy scheme would allow staff who had worked with the department for many years to "leave with dignity" said Mr Simonet.
