OUTSOURCING REPORT SHOWS GOVERNMENT KNOWS PRICE OF EVERYTHING BUT VALUE OF NOTHING’ SAYS GMB
The gravy train needs to end - public services should be just that; public says GMB Union.
GMB, Britain’s general union, has responded to a damning report into Government outsourcing.
The House of Commons public administration and constitutional affairs committee found there are fundamental flaws in the way the Government awards contracts .
Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:
“This report is utterly damning. It shows the Government is trying to provide public services on the cheap, a perfect example of knowing the cost of everything but the value of nothing.
“Privatising public services hasn’t met any measure of success.
"It ultimately costs the taxpayer, causes chaos when things go wrong, puts the market at the centre of services that should be about people rather than profit and drives down pay, terms and conditions of hardworking public servants.
“The gravy train needs to end - public services should be just that; public.”
