Union Movement asks you to support Public Services
is intent on introducing more private sector influence into the
delivery of public services. This aim is opposed by the trade
union movement. If the Government is successful, services will
deteriorate, jobs will be lost and private contractors will make
billions in profit.
too long public services have been characterised by under investment,
crumbling infrastructure and a poorly paid, demoralised workforce.
time to modernise and provide better, more responsive public services
based on these principles...
people a say in their services
teamwork - co-ordinated services delivered by a fairly treated
public service team
public services that are publicly owned, democratically run and
privatisation is having a devastating effect on the postal service
and postal workers. Licenses for the most profitable areas are
being granted in a blatant example of cherry picking.
these areas are in private hands it will be very difficult to
maintain a uniform public service across the UK. Millions will
be siphoned off which would be better invested in the service"
is ineffective. It is wasteful and has hidden costs. Ourservices
and our members jobs are threatened.
