Up to 30 Balfour Beatty staff may be made redundant as part of an ongoing cost-cutting measure by the North East Lincolnshire Council.
Unions fear these jobs cuts are the first in a wave of redundancies across the country as councils come under increasing pressure to cut current spending.
Balfour Beatty plans to deliver a package of services spanning regeneration, highways, transport and planning, asset management and architectural support under the 10-year, £250m regeneration partnership.
Union representatives from Unison have been informed of the planned job losses and consultations with staff are underway. Balfour Beatty’s present workforce for the council stands at about 300.
It is understood that about 30 staff who are now employed by Balfour Beatty as part of North East Lincolnshire Council’s partnership may lose their jobs. Although Balfour said no decision has been taken as yet.
