The City of Edinburgh Council
is considering bids for the privatisation of
large swathes of local council services. The
largest ever single privatisation of services
- There has been no public consultation on
the privatisation plans.
- There is no public information available
on the supposed financial benefits.
- The public has no access to information
on service plans and changes.
- The council has not assessed social, economic
or environmental issues
The preferred bidder for two major
contracts will be announced on 25th August 2011.
Edinburgh is on the eve of wholesale privatisation.
In the absence of any statutory consultation
UNISON has organised a public meeting at which
each political party will be invited to debate
the case for privatisation with the citizens
We invite members of the public
to submit questions for the council to address.
