Jobs battle goes online

A SOCIAL networking page has been set up as part of a campaign against privatisation of council services in Edinburgh.

Unison has set up the Facebook page, entitled "Edinburgh's Not For Sale", to get its message out to more people.

It is part of its campaign against the council's "alternative business models" project.

The union said that the council's plans, which would affect more than a dozen services, could see 3,000 jobs being taken over by the private sector.
