Job cuts are to be announced across the board in the Town Hall next year it has emerged on the heals of a disastrous week for workers in the borough.
The scrapping of 40 posts from the council follows a total of 200 losses from Entertainment Uk's two distribution centres in Greenford.
Next year Ealing Council plan to scrap 400 posts and create 360 new ones in a bid to save cash and improve efficiency.
But union leaders are furious and say it will mean a poorer service.
Brian Blake, convenor for children and adult services for Unison said: "Is this about providing good quality public services? The answer is no. They seem to be more concerned with saving money.
"Time and time again they seem to be expecting the same amount of work to be done by less and less workers across the board.
"They seem to forget that these are people and not just posts. One member was so distraught that her post had been targeted for redundancy for the third year in a row she passed out.
"Funding from central government should be based on the needs of the local community and not just on some business model."
Deloitte, the administrators of Entertainment UK, an arm of Woolworths, decided to scale down its staff to a skeleton crew of 375 employees. As well as the units in Rockware Avenue and Auriol Drive, about 500 jobs were cut from centres in Hayes. It means 200 workers are losing their jobs from the centres in Greenford.
Deloitte spokesman Dan Butters said: "The administrators are working closely with Job Centre Plus to provide support and advice to employees who have been made redundant. And the Insolvency Service's Redundancy Payments Service has put together a team to quickly approve claims for employee entitlements."
Speaking about the council job losses, finance leader, Councillor David Scott, said: "We've tabled an initial round of savings, agreed at the last cabinet meeting and further announcements, including investment in services and infrastructure, which will be put to the cabinet as we move towards setting the new council tax next year.
"To achieve these savings we will be restructuring some of our services to make them more efficient.
"It's also our intention to reduce the number of agency staff working at the council and redeploy as many permanent staff as possible."
