Mayor George Ferguson and his Conservative – Liberal – Labour – Green rainbow cabinet are proposing the possible closure of seven of our public libraries and the slashing up to a third of library staff which will stop thousands of library users from being able to access this wonderful service. Behind their florid propaganda however lies a savage cut of £1.1 million per year – or 20% – from the budget.

Bristol Trades Union Council (Bristol TUC) and BADACA opposes all cuts to jobs & services – we will campaign to defend any threatened libraries & services. We believe that our local politicians – particularly those that portray themselves as on the left – should be fighting the cuts – not implementing them on behalf of Cameron & Clegg.
