Website Pages Will Update Residents On Industrial Action

West Sussex County Council has launched website pages designed to give residents as much warning and advice as possible about any disruption to services as a result of national industrial action on Wednesday, November 30.

The web pages will be regularly updated and will include details of any schools that might have to close – decisions that will be taken by headteachers in conjunction with governing bodies.

The County Council has been reviewing and updating business continuity plans for all its services, and has said it will do its utmost to ensure as little disruption as possible for the county’s most vulnerable residents.

Council Leader, Louise Goldsmith said: “If industrial action does take place, we will ensure that as much information is made available as possible to residents through the website, and as many other channels as possible including our local media.

“We must stress again that this is a national dispute over pensions that can only be settled at national level, and we hope a resolution will be found nationally that both matches the country’s economic circumstances and also the aspirations of staff working in local government and the public sector generally.”

The website information pages can be found by following front page links at
