Counting the cost of council cuts for women

Please tell us how cuts to local services have affected you as a woman – take part in UNISON’s survey as part of our campaign against local government cuts!

Four years of cuts to local government funding have had serious consequences for women, who make up 77% of council staff and are facing cuts to jobs, pay and terms and conditions at work. Women are also more likely to use public services than men and ‘fill the gaps’ as services are closed. They are the first to be affected by cuts to local services.

As part of UNISON’s Save Our Local Services campaign, we are writing a new report that exposes the damage local government cuts have caused for women, both as council staff and users of council services. To do this we need your help – please be a part of this campaign by taking part in our survey at:

The survey will close on Sunday 16th March.

Please send this survey on to every woman you know – your responses will help us to tell the real story of how cuts to public services affect women.

Thank you!
