Leaders of Dundee’s main trade unions were among those speaking out against the cuts.
Stuart Fairweather of Unite, along with Helen Meldrum from the GMB, Jim Macfarlane of Unison and David Baxter of the teachers union EIS, condemned the budget as the “worst in living memory”.
Mr Fairweather said: “The joint trade unions in Dundee, including the teaching union EIS all opposed this budget and the cuts contained in it.
“Councillors have put party loyalty before the people and the communities of Dundee.”
Mr Macfarlane said: “I am disappointed and angry but not surprised. This is another cuts budget. Our only option now is to begin to fight back.”
Helen Meldrum said the cuts will have the biggest impact on women and children in the city
She said: ”The increase of the 25p breakfast club to £2 will have a massive detrimental impact on local families.”
