300 council staff still working from home

JUST over 300 Fermanagh and Omagh District Council staff are continuing to work remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
 
Figures released by the council show that while 308 people are working from home, there are 304 staff members continuing their employment as usual on site.
 
Significantly, the number of staff who have been furloughed has decreased.
 
In May the council announced that 200 staff had been placed under the British Government’s Job Retention Scheme. But that figure has since been reduced and currently stands at around 169.
 
Director of corporate services and governance, Celine McCartan, told a meeting of the council’s policy and resources committee that the numbers had marginally changed.
 
She also reported that 59 per-cent of the council’s workforce was currently Roman Catholic, and 34 per-cent Protestant, and that the gender balance was 53 per-cent male and 47 per-cent female. This represented a one per-cent decrease in the female workforce and a one per-cent increase in the male workforce since 2019.
