Protest at council budget meeting
9:27am Monday 18th February 2013 in News
LOCAL government union UNISON is picketing Herefordshire Council's Brockington HQ this morning ahead of a full council meeting to set the 2012/13 budget.
UNISON is challenging future job losses that come with the council's cuts programme.
The council is expected to back the budget plan that puts council tax up 1.9 per cent - just short of the two per cent rise that would trigger a referendum.
Councillors from the ruling Tory group are already inside Brockington being briefed ahead of the debate.
The result of the vote is expected around lunchtime.
