The Unite union demanded urgent talks with the government today after partially state-owned Lloyds Bank slashed 1,300 jobs.
The Treasury owns 41 per cent of Lloyds, which cut 940 jobs today, 200 on Monday and 175 last week.
It has scrapped more than 31,000 jobs since 2009 - a quarter of its staff.
Unite said it was also outraged that 190 IT jobs were being sent offshore.
Unite national officer Dominic Hook said: "It is a complete disgrace that the bank continues to cut jobs in such a cavalier way."
