Unison says council redundancy costs rise as more staff axed
Figures obtained by BBC Wales show that the amount councils are spending on redundancy payments has nearly doubled.
More than £30m was spent by local authorities on redundancy packages in the last financial year - that's compared to just over £17m in the previous year.
Simon Dunn, regional organiser for Unison in Wales, told BBC Radio Wales' Peter Johnson said it was a consequence of more job losses and not bigger pay-outs to individuals.
