United Against the Cuts - West Dunbartonshire Trade Unions and The Community
Petition Background (Preamble):
These cuts come from the Scottish Parliament and will directly affect the most vulnerable in society.
The citizens of West Dunbartonshire should not be asked to pay for the bail out of the banks and the mistakes of bankers. Indeed, maintaining the current levels of council spending would help the West Dunbartonshire economy during the recession by protecting jobs in the area. As unemployment rises and the social fallout of the recession grows the demands on West Dunbartonshire’s services will increase. The council is intending to cut services just as the demand for those very services increases.
We will be presenting this to our local Councillors and MSP’s and urging them as our Local and Parliamentary representatives to reverse the cuts in council spending and defend West Dunbartonshire’s services.
