This figure comes from GMB monitoring of budget fixing for 2016/17 in councils across the country.
Justin Bowden, GMB National Officer for local council workers, said the numbers are "the tip of the iceberg".
"The full extent of the cuts will be revealed in the Spending Review on 25 November. Spending in some parts of the public sector like local councils will be half that in 2010. These same councils have to cope with increased pressures from the care sector and other upward cost pressures.
"The last round of local government job losses were described as cutting council services to the bone. The further 30 per cent cut will mean amputations as councils and other public services are forced to decide which services they stop providing altogether.
"With the cuts to come people will have more chance of winning the lottery than seeing police patrolling their streets."
