The austerity cuts for Fife Council over the next 3 years equate to £91 million.
This is a critically damaging amount of finances taken away from much used public services. All this achieves is to drive down living standards within the Kingdom of Fife. Austerity means the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Food banks and on the increase and families are struggling to meet everyday costs. Our services are going to be slaughtered and we will face closures of many places in which we as residents of Fife rely upon. The TU bill is a blatant attempt to stop unions fighting back against these brutal cuts.
Our services are worth fighting for – without them, the most vulnerable groups will be the ones mostly losing out.
What can we do?
On 6th February Unison are holding public stalls in the town centres in Fife. We will be in Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes from 1:30 – 3:30. Help us fight for your service and petition against the Trade Union bill.
