TRADE UNIONISTS and local activists in York have launched an anti-privatisation campaign called PFI Watch. This follows the decision of the New Labour council to push ahead with PFI projects in three York primary schools.
PFI Watch aims to monitor the current projects, make the case against PFI, and provide an organising focus for residents and parents unhappy with creeping privatisation. The campaign has already scored a success with the resignation of three parish councillors over the PFI plan for their local primary school, St Oswald's.
