Time to deliver for working people in Scotland

In the wake of last month's independence referendum, Lilian Macer, Convenor of UNISON in Scotland, has called for maximum unity in the struggle 'to create decent jobs, tackle low pay, end poverty - and deliver for working class people.' Speaking at a Morning Star labour movement conference last Saturday, Lilian said 'the outcome of the independence vote was about change — whether you were in the No or the Yes camp. People have demonstrated that they value public services, they don’t want more cuts, they reject privatisation and they want a fairer and more equal society.'
