Unions representing 26,000 town hall workers in Manchester today warned of industrial action as the council debated ending its policy of no compulsory redundancies, reports The Manchester Evening News.

Bill Hoult of the manual workers section of Unison said: 'We would see a change in policy as a recipe for disaster and resist with every means possible.' And Dick Pickering, Manchester branch secretary of the GMB, vowed to oppose compulsory redundancies, says the paper.

Union sources believe the policy change will be voted down. But the paper says the stay of execution could be short. The council cut £26 million from its budget in April.
