Jobs at risk in leisure ser­vice re­struc­ture

The Scotsman - - AROUND SCOTLAND -

West Loth­ian Leisure is to en­ter con­sul­ta­tion with its staff over plans to re­struc­ture.

The com­pany, which pro­vides sport, leisure, out­door ed­u­ca­tion and cul­tural fa­cil­i­ties from 20 sites across the re­gion, and em­ploys 510 staff, said jobs would go and open­ing hours would be re­duced.

The move is part of a three-year plan dev eloped to re­spond to a com­bi­na­tion of ex­ter­nal forces, in­clud­ing in­creas­ing em­ploy­ment and op­er­a­tional costs, in­creased com­pe­ti­tion from bud­get op­er­a­tors, and sig­nif­i­cant cuts to its fund­ing.
