Defend Glasgow Services campaign
What is it?
The DGS campaign aims to unite the city’s trade unions, public services workers and community/voluntary organisations to defend Glasgow’s services. The DGS campaign was launched at a publicmeeting in January 2010.
What are its aims?
There is a set of aims that those wishing to get involved give broad support to:
Defend services and jobs
No to cuts in public spending
Oppose the privatisation of public services
Electedmembers should oppose all cuts by setting needs budgets that protect jobs
Tax the banks and financial institutions that caused the crisis. End tax avoidance by
the super-rich andmake thempay their fair share
For a united campaign of public services workers, community/voluntary organisations and service user groups to defend Glasgow’s services
How is it organised?
The intention is to create a network of organisations who agree with the broad aims of the DGS campaign. Decisions at the steering group are therefore by consensus. The steering group is open to all community/voluntary organisations who wish to participate. The steering group is guided by the principle of 50%trade union nominees and 50%community/voluntary organisation representatives. The aimis to have a steering groupmeeting once amonth.
