The Financial Times (May 10, p4) reported that a decision by Sheffield City Council to issue compulsory redundancy notices to 67 council employees has prompted the local branch of Unison to threaten a walkout by all council staff.

Sheffield said that the threat to jobs arose because of last autumn's grant settlement left it with a projected deficit of£30m. More than 500 employees have accepted voluntary redundancy.

Council leader Mike Bower, talking about the decision to issue the compulsory redundancy notices, told the paper: 'I believe that further prevarication would do nothing but make the situation much worse later in the year, with more people's jobs being affected.'
