7pm Thursday 27th November 2014 Augustine Church, 41 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh
The City of Edinburgh Council’s draft budget proposals for 2015/6 will significantly damage services for those most in need, say anti-cuts campaigners. They also fear a steep deterioration in terms and conditions for council employees. Resistance to the budget will be organised at a public meeting to be held by community groups and trade unionists at the end of the month. The Council is proposing cuts of £22m, as part of a three-year strategy that will inflict further cuts of £55m and £77m in the next two financial years. Campaigners will be identifying reductions to services for vulnerable people in the capital: they will challenge councillors on how they can support such cuts and still claim to be fulfilling their pledge when they took office in May 2012 to reduce poverty, inequality and deprivation in the city.
The meeting has been organised by a coalition of organisations including Edinburgh Anti Cuts Alliance, Edinburgh TUC, East Edinburgh Save our Services and UNITE Edinburgh Not For Profit Branch.
6.30pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 Northfield / Willowbrae Community Centre, 10 Northfield Road, EH8 7PP.
