UNISON Scotland General Election Manifesto

Public ServicesThe vast majority of UNISON Scotland’s members work in areas which are devolved to the Scottish Parliament, but even so the general election will still have a huge bearing on our working lives. With reserved issues including overall public spending levels, most economic policy, welfare spending and employment rights it could hardly be otherwise. The General election will also have a bearing on how matters decided at European Union level are translated into law.

In this manifesto we set out the issues that UNISON members will expect the political parties to address in the coming election and it should be read in conjunction with UNISON’s UK manifesto ‘Securing the future of our public services’.
