UK / 450 public sector jobs ‘lost daily’

Almost 450 jobs have been lost from councils and police forces across the UK every day since the coalition came to power, according to a new report.

Unison said its study, published ahead of the latest unemployment figures, showed that the Government should do more to ease the jobs “crisis.”

General secretary Dave Prentis said: “A million more people are struggling with the misery of unemployment compared to pre-crisis levels. The Government has made life a misery for all of these people, and for their families.

“It is a disgrace that hundreds of jobs are being lost from vital public services every single day. That means communities are missing out on services such as libraries, day centres and nurseries. Job losses from the police mean fewer safer neighbourhood teams and community support officers, so crucial in cutting crime. Stemming the tide of job losses from the public sector would not only help ease unemployment – cutting the benefits bill – it would also save the services that communities turn to in tough times. It is time for the Government to change course.”
