Glasgow member Craig describes the five day day dispute and the amazing victory achieved by the city's union members.
Members hit the streets of Glasgow and Edinburgh demanding a Winter Break on evictions.
Living Rent members in Glasgow have successfully forced a meeting with the notorious Glasgow Letting Agency, Infiniti Properties after a two day standoff which included private security, barricaded doors and three police cars.
Dozens of Living Rent activists and supporters held a protest in Edinburgh this morning amid concerns the Airbnb boom is causing severe housing problems in the capital.
Living Rent is very concerned about the growth of Airbnb, especially in 'tight' housing markets such as Edinburgh. The holiday let boom has been increasing housing scarcity and increasing rents for people who live and work in the City. We recommend very strong legislation to limit holiday lets of this kind, to ensure housing remains affordable and secure for residents.
