• A three-day strike by Liverpool Council workers last week has failed to save the jobs of 25 drivers. Redundancy notices have already been issued by the debt-ridden authority and officials say that a total of 1,000 job losses are inevitable.

"We will have to cut down on vehicle orders as well," says a council spokesman. "A total of 133 jobs will have to go in refuse collection and we will shed 15 vehicles. New vehicle orders are almost certainly out of the question."

Transport and General Workers' Union leader Ron Todd offered the council a "fresh start" with immediate talks on alternatives to compulsory redundancies. 'Liverpool is the victim of a double tragedy," he says. "The city is starved of resources by the Government and the services are poorly managed."
