Swansea needs councillors who vote against cuts! No to austerity - vote Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC).

Don’t waste the opportunity to send a clear ‘no more cuts’ message by voting for Ronnie Job, TUSC: the only no-cuts, socialist candidate in Swansea West in the 2015 General Election!

Halt closure of DVLA regional offices

The Evening Post yesterday picked up on the fact that the PCS union has exposed a falsehood in the government's arguments for proposing to shut regional DVLA offices. The government had claimed that most prosecutions are done through the central office, here in Swanseea but the PCS points out that in fact, only 1.4% of prosecutions are carried out throught the Swansea centre and nearly all enforcement work takes place in the regional offices. Given this falsehood and revelations that drivers' personal sensitive information is planned to be "offshored", it is vital to support the demands of the PCS that the plans to shut the 39 regional offices,with the loss of up to 1,200 jobs, are immediately shelved.
