Welcome for climbdown on compulsory redundancies

I was interested to see that pressure from my colleagues Kevin Keenan and Jim McGovern and the trade unions has led the SNP Administration on the City Council to withdraw the threat of compulsory redundancies to council employees. You can read a report on this from tonight's Evening Telegraph. As a member of the council I am concerned that these discussions are taking place. I hope that there will soon be an open and transparent discussion on these issues at a City Council meeting.
