STUC on the Scottish Budget
Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) General Secretary Grahame Smith today said:
“The Scottish Government promised to protect frontline services, yet the Scottish Budget will be agreed today as councils throughout Scotland are planning to close facilities, reduce services and cut much needed public sector jobs.
“Despite their claims to the contrary, Government at all levels are ducking the difficult decisions. We need the UK Government to commit to additional fiscal stimulus and to progressive taxation in the longer term, for the Scottish Government to abandon its Council Tax Freeze and the Small Business Bonus Scheme and for Scotland’s council leaders to stand up for jobs and services.”
