Glasgow City Council has unveiled a new 'transformation programme' that includes the loss of 3,000 jobs and £103m savings over the next two years.
It says the plan will allow it to 'continue to meet its goal of being a world class city that is focused on economic growth and tackling poverty and inequality, as it prepares for the unprecedented financial challenge of the next two years.'
The programme will include a review of the council's service departments and arm's-length external organisations to remove duplication and provide more customer-focused services.
It will also work in greater collaboration with partners to deliver 'better and more efficient outcomes for our citizens'.
The council says it remains committed to a policy of no compulsory redundancies and expects savings to come through not replacing staff.
Cllr Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, said pressures expected in the next two years 'go beyond anything we've had to deal with before.'
'Dealing with this may well involve difficult decisions, but I am not prepared to consider cutting services unless far greater savings are made from operating the organisation more efficiently.
'I am also still committed to delivering all of our promises to the people of Glasgow - most importantly on tackling poverty and inequality while growing the city's economy.
'Our experience of reforming our back office over the last five years, the evolving working relationships with our community planning partners, and the levels of staff attrition, give us confidence that we can meet this challenge.'
