Southampton City Council is expected to announce more job losses later today, as it battles to find savings of £25 million this year alone.
Labour came to power in May and councillors said they'd reverse a pay cut by the previous Conservative administration. But that means finding a further £3 million.
Last year, there were protests by hundreds of council workers - including bin men and traffic wardens - over job losses. Council chiefs will reveal details of a 'mini budget' at around 5pm today.
