UNISON disabled members have won support for the union’s disability equality in the workplace campaigns from Labour’s new shadow minister for disabled people, Vicky Foxcroft MP (pictured). Members of the national disabled members’ committee had the chance to question Vicky at an online meeting over the summer. Vicky started by telling members about her background in the trade union movement and her own experience of “shielding” during COVID-19. Vicky has rheumatoid arthritis and the medication she takes means she is extremely vulnerable to the virus. At the start of the crisis she was able to ...

In this study, we examined the effects of oxytocin on the Aβ-induced impairment of synaptic plasticity in mice. To investigate the effect of oxytocin on synaptic plasticity, we prepared acute hippocampal slices for extracellular recording and assessed long-term potentiation (LTP) with perfusion of the Aβ active fragment (Aβ25-35) in the absence and presence of oxytocin. We found that oxytocin reversed the impairment of LTP induced by Aβ25-35 perfusion in the mouse hippocampus. These effects were blocked by pretreatment with the selective oxytocin receptor antagonist L-368,899. Furthermore, the tr...

Coronovirus has been a massive challenge for all of us. But imagine you are a Deaf public services worker like us. We’re UNISON members. Iain works for a local council and Gillian works in a hospital. And our first language is British Sign Language. When coronavirus first hit, many Deaf people were very confused about what was happening. Unlike in Scotland, prime minister Boris Johnson’s daily press conferences haven’t had a live British Sign Language interpreter in the same room. The BBC news channel provides an interpreter in a box to the side of the screen, but this isn’t on the main ne...
