No Going Back to Normal – campaign update
UNISON Scotland regional secretary Mike Kirby said:
Thank you for supporting UNISON’s campaign: No Going Back to Normal.
You recently wrote to you local MP to call for them to support public services. Thank you. We now need you to write to your MSP to demand that the Scottish government take a different approach. They have tax raising powers, can prioritise spend and have considerable accumulated reserves.
UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced more cuts to public services. UNISON has made clear that a decade of spending cuts left public services exposed when Covid came calling. We cannot make the same mistake again. Rishi Sunak’s public sector freeze is a kick in the teeth to key workers, a blow to struggling local economies and it is divisive.
The Scottish government must take a different approach. They can do things differently – and they should. We must invest in our public services to rebuild communities, support our economy and support a fair recovery.

UNISON will continue to campaign to protect public services and those that deliver them.
Thank you for your support.
