Roughly 300 jobs could go at Hull City Council, union warns

David Burns

BBC Radio Humberside

Unison are warning that there could be 300 jobs going at the council. 

We've heard roughly 300 jobs will go but it will depend on who can go, a lot of the staff that would like to go will probably be in areas which the council will not be allowed to let people go such as adult care, social services, street team. I think it comes down to what are the council going to provide. There are going to be services which will be closed down, privatized and probably outsourced further."
