No South Somerset 'zero-hours' contracts
12:00am Sunday 6th October 2013 in Somerset
NO council workers are on ‘zero-hour’ contracts in South Somerset, according to the Deputy Leader of the district council.
Lib Dem Tim Carroll said, despite figures showing more than 1,700 council workers across the West Country are on these contracts, South Somerset is not affected.
He added: “We are the largest district council in the South West – we want council employees working for us to do so in an environment in which they feel secure and respected for the hard work they do.”
