Austerity economics is driven by the Conservative government in Westminster, but it has had an impact on every city, town and village in the UK. Across all of our communities services have been cut back, public servants are forced to do more with less and all too often, vital resources have been lost.

UNISON members know this from their own experiences how this has affected each and every one of them personally, both through the work they do and impact on the services they rely on.

That’s why it’s so important, if there are local elections in your area, that you use your vote and stand up for public services – and back the candidates who you think will do the best job at funding, supporting and protecting those services. I know who I’m voting for, but however you vote, make sure you make sure your voice – the voice of those who care about public services – is heard loud and clear.

Recent years have shown clearly that our votes do matter, but in local elections – where turnout is traditionally lower than in general elections – that’s especially true. If those of us who believe in better – and better funded – public services stay at home, then those with different values will be the ones who have their say over who represents and speaks for you.
