The STUC is holding a Budget Day rally as part of its coordinated campaign for public service investment and public workers’ pay. Following a successful campaign summit in November, unions are increasing the pressure locally and across Scotland.
To coincide with the Scottish Budget, unions will demonstrate the strength of anger across public workers and highlight the impact of year on year cuts across services. Representation from across all public services is vital for ensuring that no part of the public workforce is overlooked and taken for granted.
Date: 14th December 2017
Location: Scottish Parliament
Times: Assemble from 11.30
Rally begins 12 noon
Purpose: To escalate pressure on the Scottish Parliament to use its full suite of tax and borrowing powers to finance a rise in pay for public workers and restore the funding needed to deliver the services that Scotland deserves.
Speakers: To be confirmed.
