Council redundancies are on the rise. Service users everywhere are being hit hard as their services are either cut back, closed or privatised.
And all the evidence and experience shows that once services are run for private profit, the quality of care and service is reduced.
The real causes of the recession and their knock-on effect on our public debt have been ignored and now the public sector, not the greedy, imprudent banks have to pay the price.
That's why we're fighting hard to protect services for the public and make sure our public sector workers have decent jobs.
Watford Council are considering privatising Street Cleansing, Refuse, Recycling and Parks. If you are happy with the current service ran by the council and oppose privatisation please can you sign this petition.
The Cabinet at Watford Council decided in December to proceed to privatise or look at restructuring the workforce within the council and the final decsion will be made at a cabinet meeting at the start of April. http://watford.moderngov.co.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=121&MId=1156&Ver=4 If UNISON can get a number of people to sign this petetion we can put this to the council and under the Watford Council Petition Schme - http://www.watford.gov.uk/ccm/content/legal-and-democratic/constitution/petition-scheme.en UNISON can speak to councillors about this issue.
Thank you -UNISON Watford Council / UNISON Eastern Region
