Protest over planned Cambridgeshire County Council cuts
Union fights to save council jobs
Members of the union Unison have staged a protest over planned cuts at Cambridgeshire County Council.
Reduced government funding, demand for services and a growing population means the council needs to make cuts of £55m over the next five years, it has said.
Social care, libraries and children's services will be "redesigned" and 300 jobs could be cut.
The Cambridge District Trades Council said the county's infrastructure was at "breaking point."
Tom Woodcock, of the Trades Council, described the cuts as "absolutely massive" and said the council should be spending and increasing public services.
Councillor John Reynolds from Cambridgeshire County Council said: "The union seems to be out of step with the real world, people are losing their jobs and the council has got to bear some of that pain as well."
