UNISON OPPOSES STOCK TRANSFER IN GLASGOW

Public sector union Unison is calling for Glasgow City Council to scrap its plans for the largest ever stock transfer.

Unison's Scottish convener Mike Kirby said the union will launch a counter campaign when the council begins its tenant consultation on the transfer.

The union says there are a number of issues which remain unresolved, including failure to set up local housing organisations with tenants.

Mr Kirby said: 'Despite being overdue by several months, this document appears not to answer key questions about investment, organisation and running Glasgow's housing service.'

The policy and resources committee considered the latest proposals for the stock transfer this week.

A spokesman for leader Charlie Gordon (Lab) said: 'It is no secret we have, as yet, been unable to complete evaluation of the plan. We will be getting an assessment of the merits of the business plan.' (LGC, 3 August).
