Lloyds Banking Group has come under attack after announcing a further 550 job cuts.
Unite said the cuts were on top of 1,340 job losses announced in January.
The union said that while the bank continued to cut directly employed jobs, the group was still taking on more agency workers.
Unite national officer Dominic Hook said: "Lloyds cannot continue to cut now then ask questions later.
"It's madness that the bank has so many agency workers when it's cutting so many permanent jobs.
"Lloyds is looking for a period of stability and growth but it won't be achieved by continuous and damaging job cuts. The bank must put an end to mass redundancies and instead foster job security, pay workers fairly and concentrate on customer service."
