LONDON: Trade unionists and local residents will gather outside Camden Town Hall on Wednesday December 1 from 6pm as the Council's Labour cabinet considers proposals to slash more than £82.5 million from council spending over the next three years.
Nearly 1,000 council jobs are under threat, with rents on council properties due to jump by more than 7 per cent.
The protest has been called by Camden Trades Council with the backing of Camden Unison, the NUT and Holborn & St Pancras Constituency Labour Party.
