Trade unions are set to demonstrate with campaign group Glasgow Against Closures this weekend in an attempt to save venues being shut down across the city. 

UNISON, GMB and Unite will march alongside the community group this Saturday to protest the proposed closure of Glasgow Life venues, such as libraries, across the city. 

We previously reported that libraries such as those in Whiteinch and Maryhill are set to be relocated or removed from the area, leaving questions marks over the future of jobs at the sites. 

Following the announcement of the proposed closure and relocations, the trade unions representing staff lodged a formal collective grievance to Glasgow City Council

A spokesman for the joint trade unions said: "Senior officials have failed to consult UNISON, GMB and Unite on plans to cut 500 jobs despite the proposal being announced to the media two weeks ago, have not provided basic staffing information, set out how workers jobs might be protected or adopted a coherent plan to re-open venues in line with the decision of the last full council meeting.

"Glasgow needs more investment, not less. The trade unions are calling for a proper plan to secure the financial future of all current Glasgow Life services and jobs. 

"The city's leisure and sports facilities, libraries and cultural venues are under immediate threat."

The demonstration will take place on Saturday, July 31, with protestors gathering at St Mungo Museum at 12.30pm, before leading the procession to the People's Palace.
