Unison has published a motion to be presented at next month's TUC conference in Blackpool, challenging the government's privatisation plans.

It said: 'The reform of public services will not be achieved through an increased role for the private sector. Congress remains committed to the public service ethos and believes improvements can only be made in partnership with service users and with the involvement of staff.'

The motion also calls for strengthened staff protection agreements and a 'fair wages clause' in all contracts.

Prime minister Tony Blair is expected to address the conference next month, where Unison will oppose the private finance initiative and call for an investigation into the 'big four' accountancy firms.
