Warning on council pay rise plan

Unions are warnings of a backlash if senior managers at Aberdeen City Council are awarded pay increases.

The local authority is planning to reduce the number of heads of service from 25 to 16.

A report is recommending that a new salary package be approved. It comes as the council consults over hundreds of possible job cuts.

Regional organiser of the Unite union, Tommy Campbell, criticised the pay rise plans in the current financial climate.
