The latest staff exodus will be completed by April 2014, the Labour-run authority has confirmed.
Bosses blame "unfair" Government cuts for the continuing mass exodus of employees.

The announcement comes as the authority released details of its draft budget for the next three years.
Roger Kershaw, strategic director of resources, said the losses were because the council was being forced to save £63 million over the next three years – an amount he described as "phenomenal".
Leader Paul Bayliss said he deeply regretted every job loss and that compulsory redundancies will be kept to an "absolute minimum".
He said: "This isn't a budget we would set naturally ourselves. It is a budget that has been shaped by Government cuts being too deep and too fast.
"It isn't a budget I would commend to anyone."
