Cuts Watch #309: 30,000 council job cuts

12 Nov 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Work by the GMB has found that almost 30,000 jobs are set to go in 21 local authorities, with others facing changes to pay, terms and conditions.  The scale of the cuts is emerging ahead of the local government financial settlement, which will be announced in early December, with council budgets being finalised in the spring. The Local Government Association warned (Local Government Chronicle subscription required) last month that 100,000 jobs are likely to be lost as a result of the cuts to local government announced in the spending review, but the GMB’s work suggests that this figure could be even higher as many councils are still to announce their plans.
