Essex police could lose employment protection
2:23pm Thursday 15th March 2012 in News
ESSEX police officers could be made redundant under new proposals.
Previously officers could not be made redundant for budgetary reasons in exchange for them giving up the right to strike, working unsociable hours at short notice and giving up other rights enjoyed by other professions.
However the Winsor report part two which examined police pay and conditions and was published yesterday has recommended this protection is withdrawn.
