Stop Labour Wasting Your Money

The Labour Council currently use taxpayers’ money to pay certain council staff to undertake trade union duties instead of their actual council role. The cost of this scheme to the taxpayer was planned to be £353,000.

It has now been revealed that the Council is predicted to overspend on these roles by £136,000 – so that’s nearly £500,000 of taxpayers’ money spent on trade union conveners.

14 union reps have had their salaries increased. Some salaries have nearly doubled.

Sheffield Liberal Democrats have vowed to scrap these taxpayer funded roles to fund things such as social care instead.
