UNISON Wins Fight Against Privatisation

Just over 2 years ago Edinburgh Council Started a drive to privatise huge swathes of their services , with over 4000 posts being transferred to the Private Sector ,contracts worth  over a billion pounds !

UNISON campaigned , negotiated and lobbied from the City Chambers , to the Scottish Parliament and  worked with local residents groups to finally bring an end to the Privatisation Plans after the majority of Councillors accepted that in house ,not for profit provision of  services was best.

A truly magnificent result and a testament to what our union can do when we all pull together , work with the communities we serve and believe we can win !
