"Deputy Chief Steve Beckley at Haworth last night; Told them that Keighley is to lose a pump in April and
Haworthwill be staying open for the time being. What happened to the consultation process? Mr Beckley is the Deputy who has taken his pension but stayed on, so he now gets £60,000 salary and £60,000 pension, taking him back up to his original £120,000. He will also be drawing interest on his half a million lump sum at the same time, so another £10,000 there. Could he be the best part time employee in the county? "
YES - we think he probably is !!!
(this scheme is NOT open to ordinary fire fighters btw)
With information like this - its no wonder we at FCCL get cross - we have of course emailed Simon Pilling to ask if this is TRUE - for a start was DFO Beckley at Keighley last night would be a good place to start.
BUT it seems that deals are already being done ------ without the consultation process even finishing..................
anyway for nearly the last time (well till next year)
IF YOU OBJECT TO THE CUTS PLEASE
