The union for public sector workers GMB has spoken out about proposed cuts of up to 2,000 jobs at Wolverhampton City Council, calling it a "devastating blow" to workers.
Today's announcement of a jobs cull in Wolverhampton due to the cuts is a devastating blow to GMB members, who now face an uncertain future. Jobs and working hours are under threat.
Those who survive the jobs cull can expect a pay freeze, equating to a real terms pay cut, and an ever increasing work load. GMB officers and shop stewards will be meeting with the council to discuss these cuts in order to protect the interests of our members."
The council has announced up to 2,000 jobs could go because they need to save £120m over the next five years.
The Labour-controlled council said it was battling the most "challenging" financial circumstances in its history because of "massively reduced" grant funding from the Government.
