Leicestershire county councillors say they are disappointed that unions are considering industrial action following a budget package proposed jointly by Labour and Liberal Democrat groups, reports BBC Oxford.
It will lead to cut of £2.5m in the education budget, leading to 40 job losses. Around 60 jobs will also go as a result of the closure of three homes for the elderly.
Labour spokesman Ross Wilmot commented: 'We've done the best we can. If there is any action it should be aimed at the government and certainly not at the Labour group of the county council'.
Conservative group leader Bob Osborne said he was totally opposed to any suggested of industrial action and said it was regrettable that some teachers went on strike to lobby yesterday's meeting, depriving children of their education. He hoped they would not do it again.
