Cleaner and Greener team to be restructured

First published in News

TEAM that keeps Worcester clean and tidy could be restructured after a consultation period was launched.

The 45-day consultation aims to bring job descriptions of employees in Worcester City Council's Cleaner and Greener City department in line with changes made to the team's work in recent years.

It will involve closing 150 existing posts and creating new ones, with the majority of staff moving directly into new roles on the same pay grades and few or no redundancies are anticipated.

It will ensure the staffing structure is fit for purpose and the department can continue to deliver services effectively and efficiently.

There are several anomalies in the way the department is currently organised, with cases people doing exactly the same jobs being on different pay grades.

The proposed restructure will put the department in a better position to meet the challenges presented by government funding cuts.

Hopefully litter clearing won't be affected too much as the City definitely needs cleaning up.

I'm glad to say that they do a pretty good job on St Peters generally. Personally I'd make sure that more community service orders for minor criminal offences are issued so we can actually get something back from them. A few months clearing up other people's rubbish might concentrate their minds on not repeat offending. In fact I think it should certainly be an automatic sentence for those caught littering. Same for inconsiderate dog owners. Won't clear up their own c.rap? Let them clear up after other owners.

So this is after the last restructure less than two years ago in e very same department?..... Job creation? Discuss......

Personally wouldn't give your tuppence for any of the management in there but I'm sure they will be immune from the restructure as they were previously!
