Why should the jobs and services go if the need still exists?
"The cuts we are facing across the UK are not about money but about politics.
A politics that hates public services and loves to profit from privatisation. A politics that sees a workforce engaged in caring and educating not as an achievement to be celebrated but as a problem to be tackled.
Why should the jobs and services go if the need still exists?"
Mike Kirby,
UNISON Scottish Secretary
