Welcome to my Blog

I was the Head of Policy and Public Affairs at UNISON Scotland until my retirement in September 2018. I now work on several policy development projects, so all views are very definitely my own. You can also follow me on Twitter. I hope you find this blog interesting and I would welcome your comments.

Glasgow demo

Great day today. Marching through Glasgow in glorious sunshine with thousands of UNISON members to defend our public services.

UNISON President Gerry Gallagher summed up our case at the rally in Kelvingrove Park when he said; "Our members didn't cause the crash, and neither did the people we serve every day in communities across Scotland".

Our members coming together like this is what trade union solidarity is all about. We may not have the resources of the business funded campaigns to slash public services - but we have real people. And when they come together at events like this, they are more powerful than the slickest video or media stunt.
