Tourist Tax for Council Flats - BIG Saturday Strategy Day

Saturday Strategy Day Saturday 17th 11am - 5pm at St Margarets House 151 London Road EH7

Edinburgh is implementing a tourist levy, which will generate around £37 million each year, we want a proportion of this to go towards building and reparing council housing. So far, we got the council to pass a motion in support of it being spent on housing, in theory, but now we need a firm commitment.

Come along to this day to get stuck into this campaign and plan activities ethe next 6 months as well as hear about what else is happening in your union! No experience needed, just a passion to build more council housing!
