Kindergarten Parliament

nursery nurses demonstrating

The picture above comes from a demonstration today by Scottish nursery nurses who are out on all out strike demanding a national pay increase. Labour dominated COSLA are trying to push for regional pay settlements despite the fact that all nursery nurses are public employees doing the same job. The placard refers to Pat Watters, COSLA chief, who resignation has been demanded by the Scottish Socialist leader Tommy Sheridan at the SSP conference this weekend. The Scottish Executive have done their usual Pontius Pilate act and said that it is not their concern. At the same time COSLA and the Scottish Executive are happy to push through a £25 000 national pay deal for councillors.
