Wolverhampton City Council to cut hundreds of jobs
Wolverhampton City Council has issued redundancy notices to about 500 staff as it looks to save millions of pounds.
The Labour-controlled authority said it had previously identified £40m of savings but still has to find a further £60m over the next five years.
Councillors are recommending that a net budget of almost £240m be approved for 2011/2012 and council tax be frozen at 2010/2011 levels.
Unison said the city would suffer from more unemployment and service cuts.
