Union backing public sector workers as cutbacks loom - Isle of Man Today .
THE president of trade union Prospect has pledged its support for members in the Manx public sector as government cutbacks loom.
Catherine Donaldson visited the Island on Monday in the wake of government warnings there could be public sector job losses to cope with a massive loss of income from VAT.
The reality is there is no need for cuts: the Isle of Man can readily afford its public services. It just has to be willing to raise sensible levels of tax to pay for them.
