More than 750 council workers have applied for voluntary redundancy or early retirement as part of £23 million budget cuts at Dundee City Council.
The local authority approved its spending plans in February, including proposals to reduce its workforce as it tried to take on major financial challenges.
Every member of council staff was written to, outlining how they could apply to leave their job early.
The council has not confirmed how many of those workers are likely to be granted their applications.
However, it was said during the budget process that about 200 positions would likely go.
Jim McFarlane of union Unison said that only five or six employees so far have been told they will be allowed to go.
He said: “We know for sure that a handful of workers from the environment department have been awarded a redundancy package.
“However, no one else has been told. People need to know what the future holds for them.
“It’s now more than a month since the budget and still people are waiting to hear.”
A Dundee City Council spokesman said: “Over 750 council employees applied for voluntary early retirement or voluntary redundancy.
“Services across the local authority have been asked to maintain contact with their applicants and advise on progress.
“The council is in regular discussions with trade unions around the issues involved with early retirement and voluntary redundancy.
“The first employees who have had their applications accepted will leave at the end of this month. We will continue to keep people updated.”
