Unison: ‘Army’ of council workers lost to austerity cuts – BBC News

Welsh councils have shed more than 28,000 jobs in the last eight years, according to figures collated by public sector workers’ union Unison.

The scale of job losses is similar to the numbers lost in the coal industry after the miners’ strike in the 1980s. The union said councils “have lost an army of librarians, youth workers and school support staff” and blames austerity from the UK government.
