Andrew Aldis has alleged he was fired after refusing to take a £4000 pay cut following East Riding Council's restructure of local concert venue Bridlington Spa. He said: "I was told by the director of the section that the general manager at Bridlington Spa is no different and needs no additional skills to running a leisure centre. It was absolutely horrendous."
He added: “It’s devaluing the arts and it’s certainly not recognising the importance of an employee to the people who are paying the council tax.”
East Riding Council was contacted for comment.
