STUC Budget Submission 2012 proves there is still a better way

Budget Day is Wed 21 March - and ahead of that the Scottish TUC has published its latest Budget Submission which makes the case against austerity and provides credible alternatives to the disastrous ConDem cuts.

General Secretary Grahame Smith said: "The STUC has consistently argued that the mistakes of recessions past are being repeated. The big danger now is that a significant proportion of currently high unemployment becomes structural. This would leave a terrible human, social and economic legacy for Scotland to deal with. The Government has to act now to prevent it happening.”
