Computer says you’re sacked

Issue No. 2293

Worcestershire council is using computer wallpaper to tell workers they could be sacked. The workers are furious and around 250 of them have complained.

A graphic on the wallpaper spells out the council’s “Better Outcomes Leaner Delivery” strategy. Part of this is an aim to “minimise compulsory redundancies”. The council could cut some 10 percent of its workforce by 2014.
