Wolverhampton Council Face Double Expected Job Cuts

Staff at Wolverhampton City Council had the devastating news today that last September’s announcement of 1000 redundancies has been increased to 2000 job losses, on top of the 400 jobs already gone.  Today the Council put directly to its employees, if they would accept a pay cut and a reduction in their terms & conditions, which as yet has not been negotiated with the trade unions.
