Unison members at Birmingham City Council called for a ballot on industrial action last week to protest against proposed cuts in the city's neighbourhood offices.

Unison's chief steward for the neighbourhood offices, David Hughes, said the council wants to scrap 16 out of 40 co- ordinator posts.

He said 18 neighbourhood support staff were also at risk. Staff face either redundancy or redeployment at reduced rates of pay.

The council said the changes were intended to 'achieve a more efficient, cost-effective service'.
