Corbyn has strong mandate to opppose cuts says UNISON
Speaking at the TUC congress in Brighton, Lilian Macer, Convener
of UNISON Scotland, said:
"We are delighted that Labour Party has elected a leader
who is strongly opposed to austerity. UK Government cuts are hitting
people and their public services hard in Scotland, just as they
are right across the UK.
"UNISON members can see the damage that austerity is doing
first hand. With job losses, pay freezes and cuts to services.
Jeremy Corbyn has been given a strong mandate to oppose the UK
government cuts and set out a real positive alternative."
UNISON is the biggest trade union in Scotland
