Magherafelt District Council staff BT45
A total of 184 council workers, throughout each of the council’s departments, received letters inviting applications for redundancy in late November 2010. The move came just 12 months after a number of workers at the Greenvale Leisure Centre in the town were forced to take redundancy. Mid-Ulster Trades Council spokesman, Harry Hutchinson, greeted the development with alarm. He said:
“All it’s going to do is reduce employment in the area and leave the council inevitably over stretched. While they are acting within the law, we condemn any further reductions in employment. This is not the way forward at this particular time.”
