GMB Broadcast 3 Dirty Cuts

These are brutal examples of the real price of austerity in Scotland’s biggest city but we know refuse services across our councils have been at the sharp end of cuts for years.

North Sea Decommissioning: Failure to act now could mean the worst of all worlds

North Sea decommissioning could be Scotland’s £100 million golden ticket. It’s recently been reported that between now and the mid-2050s, around 470 platforms, 5,000 wells, 10,000km of pipelines and 40,000 concrete blocks will have to be removed from the North Sea. That’s a lot of work requiring a lot of people with the right skills, complemented by the right infrastructure - a fantastic economic and employment opportunity for Scotland.
