POWER TO THE PEOPLE – BUT CASH TO THE UNIONS…

By David Vance On July 4th, 2012

The UK Trade Unions are getting £36 MILLION  a year from the taxpayer to fund their increasingly hostile and anti-public sevice activites. This is a scandal – ALL such funding must be cut off.

TAXPAYERS are funding the salaries of trade union activists in the civil service to the tune of £36million a year, Whitehall figures showed last night.  At least 6,800 civil servants are being paid from public funds to cover working hours on union duties. Much of their time has been spent fighting the Government’s drive to cut costs at Whitehall. An investigation found 248 civil servants work full-time on union business while being paid from public funds – 100 more than previously thought. Thousands more work part-time on union duties.

So, we are funding people to spend their time forcing us to fund them even more. Great. This is the sort of lunatic thinking that pervades Government and it shows how the Unions REALLY rip us all off.
