Public Works is the UNISON Scotland campaign for services, jobs, fair taxation and a Living Wage… and against austerity. This toolkit provides branches with campaign resources to save our public services from the cuts driven by an austerity that is a political choice not an economic necessity
The fight back starts here
UNISON branches are faced with cuts in funding across public services, made worse in local government by artificial restraints on resources through the impact of ten years of a regressive Council Tax freeze.
UNISON is fighting back – with a twin-tracked campaign at Scottish and branch level engaging user groups and communities to lead successful opposition to cuts.
