Lanarkshire Greens have announced that Ruth Thomas will be their candidate in the Clydesdale South council by-election to be held on 5th June.
 
Ruth will be campaigning for more openness in the council following the recent equal pay case in which the council spent hundreds of thousands of pounds trying to stop low paid workers getting the money which they had earned, and the scandal in which SLC was fobbed off with inadequate restoration bonds for opencast mines which were abandoned which Scottish Coal went bankrupt.

Communities need a say in Mine Restoration Trust say Greens.

23rd May 2013

The Scottish Greens have urged the Energy Minister to make sure that those communities most affected by decades of opencast coal mining in Scotland are represented on the new Scottish Mines Restoration Trust, which has been set up following the collapse of Scottish Coal.
