Better Jobs Closer to Home

Wales TUC – powered by Welsh trade unions – has launched the Better Jobs, Closer to Home campaign to demand change for communities where poverty and disadvantage are all too common.

As fresh austerity measures and cuts to benefits from the UK government threaten our most deprived communities with unjust hardship, Wales TUC is campaigning for a plan for a strong local economy powered by decent work.

The Welsh Government has new powers to ensure that public investment in our services directly creates good jobs, where they are needed most. Welsh trade unions are now calling on politicians to commit to using these powers so that investment is committed to the valleys with organisations who employ disadvantaged and disabled people on decent wages and good conditions. This means creating good jobs for young people, lone parents, adults without qualifications and the long term unemployed among others. A radical move to create actual opportunities for those shut out of the jobs market.

But it doesn’t stop there. Wales can’t prosper while the valleys struggle so now is the time support the area with a genuine mix of exciting opportunities allowing people to get on without having to get out. Major projects like the South Wales METRO, for instance, should be maximised with a headquarters located in the valleys.
