Shocking picture of austerity cuts to local services is revealed by UNISON
The true scale of almost a decade of savage austerity cuts to local communities across Britain is laid bare in a study published by UNISON today (Friday), showing the impact of huge reductions in council funding. A series of freedom of information (FoI) requests across England, Scotland and Wales examined the changes in local services between 2010 and 2019 for several key council services, including youth centres, public toilets, libraries and subsidised bus routes. Central government cuts have led to a 17% fall in council spending on local services in England since the Conservatives came to power in 2010. Betwe...

Cuts … not just Brexit
Just weeks ago, as the general election campaign started to pick up speed, NHS England released some interesting data: accident and emergency waiting times were the worst on record. It didn’t get that much traction in a media concentrating on the run-up to the political theatre of the first party leaders’ debate. But as fullfact.org spelled out: “In October 2019, 83.6% of patients attending all types of A&E departments (including things like dental A&E and urgent care centres) in England were admitted, transferred or discharged within four hours.” A year ago, 89.1% were seen within the four-...

The floods penetrated Saint Mark’s Basilica, a 1,000 year old church that is considered to be one of the finest examples of Byzantine architecture in the world and one of the city’s most famous landmarks. While floods are a normal part of life in Venice, which is famously built on a lagoon at the edge of the Adriatic Sea, they have never happened with such frequency before. Experts say that climate...

A vote for public services?
UNISON has welcomed the pledges to improve our public services and make life better for all who use and work in them, contained in the Labour Party manifesto published this week. They add up to “a powerful package to rebuild the country and help millions whose lives have been ravaged by nine years of austerity,” says general secretary Dave Prentis. “It commits to restoring the funding snatched from public services by the Tories’ cold-hearted economic policies and gives dedicated public servants the wage rises they’ve been denied for so long.” As our general secretary says in his latest b...

UNISON announces health strike dates in Northern Ireland
UNISON has today (Wednesday) announced the dates for strikes and industrial action by health and social services staff in Northern Ireland. Workers represented by the union voted overwhelmingly earlier this month to take action over safe staffing levels and pay parity. Health staff in Northern Ireland are paid less than their colleagues in Britain. Waiting lists and waiting times have reached crisis levels for patients across Northern Ireland, partly as a result of poor pay and staffing, according to UNISON. The first phase – from Monday 25 November to Wednesday 18 December – will see UNISON members across...
