Council leaders in Sheffield said they were faced with bridging £40m between what they need to maintain services and projected income, reports The Yorkshire Post (p1).
2,000 jobs could be lost and Unison said any attempts to make cuts through redundancies would be met with strike action.
Kirklees Council said it had lost £9m in support grant and council taxpayers could face a £80m rise in bills. North Yorkshire said bills could rise by 7%.
But Leeds, whose SSA will rise by 3.4% next year, says it will not be cutting services because it has made economies particularly in senior management posts. And Harrogate council's fears of having to further prune spending were not realised.
