Workers at Nottingham City Council are protesting today over a freeze in their wages.
The council leader explains that the local authority has had a reduction in its budget of £27 million this year and a further £23 million next year.
"Maintaining services and protecting jobs has to be our top priority. The freeze in incremental pay rises has saved 150 jobs since 2011. Continuing it next year would help protect upwards of 100 jobs.
"We're taking steps towards implementing the Living Wage to support the lowest paid staff and will be discussing this further with the trade unions."
