PCS STRIKE: GREENS SHOW SUPPORT FOR PUBLIC WORKERS
As members of the PCS public services union stage a fresh strike over pay and pensions, Green MSP Patrick Harvie is urging SNP ministers to show a different approach to the UK Coalition.
Union members will rally outside the Scottish Parliament tomorrow (15 May) and the Scottish Greens will once more show support for strong public services by refusing to cross the picket line.
Patrick Harvie, Green MSP for Glasgow, said:
"SNP ministers are maintaining a real terms pay cut for workers delivering the public services we all depend on. They like to blame cuts from Westminster but the truth is they have the power to take a different approach.
"PCS members fighting for fair treatment can be assured of the support of the Scottish Greens. I hope MSPs from other parties consider joining us in taking a principled stand on this important issue."
