Representatives from the Unite union, which represents more than 1,000 employees at Birmingham City Council, says the announcement that 6,000 jobs will go over the next four years is a "savage blow."
The union will hold meetings with council bosses tomorrow to discuss the cuts to the council's budget that could see the 13,000 people that work for the local authority cut to 7,000 by 2017.
Gerard Coyne from the Unite union in the West Midlands said: “This will be heart breaking news for the council employees whose jobs are under threat and their families and further reinforces the savagery of the coalition’s austerity programme. People rely on council services to educate their children, to care for the elderly, to provide housing for those in need, and act as an agent of economic generation – all these services, and many more, will be severely eroded."
