Opposition parties and union leaders have said the latest budget projections are more of the same and have called on the SNP in Glasgow to stand up to he Government at Holyrood.

Party leaders have been briefed by finance chiefs at the council of the scale of next years cuts.

They have been told the council is looking at a shortfall of £57.5m next year and further cuts around £60m and £50m in the two following years.

Frank McAveety, Labour group leader on Glasgow City Council, said: “ It is yet another year in which Glasgow’s budget will be cut by the SNP government.

“It seems they are happy to pay for shiny new things but not for services and protecting jobs in Glasgow.

“We were promised something different but this is more of the same.”

Labour, the Tories and the Greens will be asked to produce their budget proposals before the SNP brings forward its final plans early next year for the council to approve.

Unions have said “enough is enough” and have called on Finance Secretary Derek Mackay to stop cuts to councils.

GMB which represents many Glasgow City Council workers said the ten years of council cuts cannot be allowed to continue.

It is looking to Scottish Finance secretary Derek Mackay to use his budget to stop cuts to local authorities.

A union spokesman said if the SNP is serious about tackling austerity it has to stop taking cash from councils.

The GMB spokesman said: “Derek Mackay has said there needs to be an end to austerity. This doesn’t signal the end of austerity.

“Glasgow has lost more than £300m in the last ten years. Our position is enough is enough.”

Brian Smith, Unison Glasgow branch secretary, said: This is an accumulation. It is cuts on top of cuts. and services are on their knees already.

“We say don’t make the cuts. Stand up to the government and use whatever financial powers are available to prevent cuts.”

Mr Smith said Glasgow is affected more than others due to how council funding is allocated.

He said: “It doesn’t take account of the multiple poverty indicators and Glasgow is disproportionately affected.”
