Greens Stand by Female Workers Fighting for Equal Pay

Allan Young Wed 24 Oct, 2018

Since monday evening a huge number of Glasgow City Council workers have downed tools, either going on strike or refusing to cross picket lines. We in the Scottish Green Party support, as we have always done, their continued fight for equal pay.

The scheduled two-day industrial action has caused sizeable disruption and shows both how seldom homecare workers, cleaners, learning support workers and others go on strike and also how important their work is to our city.

Green Councillors Are Calling for a Free Tap Water Refill Scheme to Help Cut Plastic Bottle Waste

Mon 2 Jul, 2018

It is estimated that the average Glaswegian adult buys more than 3 plastic water bottles every week, which adds up to a startling 175 bottles every year per person. In total, the UK uses 13 billion plastic bottles every year. Only 7.5 billion are recycled, with the remaining 5.5 billion causing substantial amounts of single-use plastic waste.

In addition to this, the production of bottled water is around five hundred times more carbon intensive than tap water, and the quality tests for bottled brands are far less stringent than for the water that comes out of our taps.
