Message of support from Drew Smith MSP

Unison members taking strike action as part of the national pensions dispute have my support and solidarity.  Pensions are deferred wages, not perks.  The UK and Scottish governments should be getting around the table with the public service trades unions to negotiate a settlement but instead they have forced the issue to the point of crisis.  Paying more, working longer and getting less is an insult to hardworking public servants across Scotland, and I will be joining Unison picket lines in Glasgow to make clear my opposition to the government’s unreasonable and foolish stance.

Drew Smith MSP, Glasgow, Scottish Labour Party
