Scottish Water

Issue No. 1849

SCOTTISH WATER (SW) has announced 1,400 redundancies over the next two years (900 this year and 500 next year). Around 1,300 jobs have already been lost through voluntary redundancy. A year ago the four unions in SW, Unison, TGWU, GMB and AEEU,went into a partnership agreement with management.

Management has used this to bulldoze ahead with its own agenda. It is time for the unions to throw this partnership deal into the bin and start a fightback against water privatisation, workplace closures and job losses.
