Labour’s insourcing plans are a welcome first step, says UNISON

Commenting on the Labour Party’s plans to reverse the trend of public services being outsourced to private contractors and bring services back in-house, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:

“This report is a welcome first step on the road to ending the scourge of public service privatisation. For the first time in 20 years we’re seeing positive signs that Labour understands the damage that outsourcing has caused – and is developing a plan to reverse it.

“I’m looking forward to working with the Shadow Chancellor and other members of the shadow cabinet to deliver on Labour’s conference policy – an end to all privatisation in the public sector in the first term of the next Labour government.”
