Dounreay bosses stay silent over turmoil claims. Management at Dounreay yesterday refused to comment on claims that the site is in turmoil and that morale among staff is at rock bottom. According to sources inside the plant some long serving employees “can’t remember it being so bad”. The workforce is concerned at the way the plant is being run while trade unions have submittede a letter of little or no confidence in the management and have been involved in talks to resolve the issues. But management and unions are trying to keep things low key because of what happened at Sellafield. URS which was part of the Sellafield consortium which was sacked is also a part of the Cavendish Dounreay Partnership. The insider said the truth is the NDA model is not working. Senior managers commute between Bristol and Wick, which doesn’t help continuity.
