Today is D-Day for hundreds of council workers in Southampton.
City chiefs were due to tell staff that up to 250 of them are to lose their jobs.
It comes as they reveal a multi-million pound shortfall in their budget for next year.
On top of the job cuts services will be slashed and charges for vital services hiked.
The new redundancies come just months after 200 contract staff at the Civic Centre were told they were facing the axe.
Opposition bosses said the council staff had been “betrayed” by the Labour leadership.
