$6mill spent on staff redundancies
RNZ report that Auckland Transport has spent $6 million on staff redundancies as part of a drive to cut costs, including paying out some who were offered other jobs within the agency. The restructure was in response to Auckland Council's directive that gave AT just a few months to make cuts of $30m. Figures provided to RNZ under the Official Information Act show the top 10 payouts total just under $1.2m, the highest being $196,188. See the full article in the link below.
