Sheffield City Council has voted to shed 1,000 town hall jobs in an effort to balance next year's budget, reported the Yorkshire Post on Saturday on its front page (December 18).

Despite a protest by staff organised by public service union UNISON, the emergency council meeting agreed on a sweeping package of cuts to save £18.2m.

Another £9m is to be saved in employment costs, says the paper, which personnel estimates will mean 990 job losses. Chief officers have also been ordered to identify another £4m in savings from a review of management at the local authority, the paper reports.
