Unison yesterday announced the start of a major campaign to defend public services and attack what it calls 'private sleaze'.
The union's campaign involves opinion polling and working with community groups and culminates in a demonstration in London on 21 October. Unison will be hiring a train to ensure maximum attendance and will be offering seats to community and other groups.
Associate general secretary of Unison Rodney Bickerstaffe said:
'It is vital to the future of Scotland's public services the Unison's campaign is a success... We are involving the Scottish people in this campaign, because we want to ensure that when we defend local government, the health service, public water supply, and locally controlled education, we are doing so in conjunction with the users of these services.'
