UNEMPLOYMENT FIGURES – UNISON REACTION

Commenting on the latest unemployment figures released today (16 June), Dave Prentis, UNISON’s General Secretary, said: -With unemployment on the up again it makes no sense to throw thousands more people on to the dole queues.

-Behind every statistic is a personal tragedy – cuts to public spending will have a huge impact on the local economy and will devastate communities and families.

-We face a lost generation of disaffected young people, struggling to get their first foot into work.

-Cutting hard and fast will risk a double dip recession. We need to protect public services and create opportunities for young people and the long-term unemployed.”
