Members of Coventry City UNISON were joined by anti cuts activists, members of the public and delegates from Coventry Trade Union Council to rally for connected services for Coventry residents. The event took place outside the Central Library at noon on Saturday 3rd Decembers
Members of the public queued up to sign the petition in defence of libraries and were very keen to get involved. A petition by the Save the Library Campaign is due to be handed in to the City Council at 1pm on Monday 12th December. Visit the Save the Libraries Campaign Facebook page for more info
The ‘Connecting Communities’ consultation includes proposals which will hit libraries, children’s centres, youth services and nursery provision. New proposals from the City Council now threaten an additional £36m of cuts over three years with many vital services now under threat. It is hard to see how the proposals actually play a role in ‘Connecting’ our communities.
UNISON will continue to campaign for our high quality public services to be delivered by Council staff, accountable to elected Members and to the public we serve. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to get involved….
