Redundancies possible as CPT consults
The Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) is to enter a consultation, in which the make-up of its team will be discussed.
The trade body is consulting as a result of the affects of the coronavirus crisis. Staffing costs will have to be reviewed considering the potential for a contracted market due to the effects of the pandemic and there is the possibility it could make some staff redundant. The consultation is intended to ensure CPT is in a robust position to get through this difficult period.
A planned move from its London office is expected to lead to a six-figure saving. However, it believes further savings could be made through new ways of working discovered during the lockdown period. Changes that could be implemented as a result of the consultation include what a CPT spokesperson described as a more streamlined regional and national structure.
The consultation is to be started in earnest this week and is likely to last a number of weeks.
