Blog: Solidarity with Birmingham home care workers
No-one goes on strike lightly. Care workers certainly don’t. They know the benefit they bring, every hour of every day, to those they care for. Yet in Birmingham, home care workers are striking this Saturday, because they’ve been pushed to breaking point. Government cuts to local authority budgets have led to Birmingham City Council slashing the home care/enablement budget by 40%. This is on top of seven years of austerity – where the social care workforce has fallen from 7,000 to just 2,000 – a further, damaging, deep cut to care. That’s why homecare workers balloted to strike, with 99% votin...

Blog: Proud of UNISON ’s history tackling inequality and racism
It was a great pleasure to address UNISON Black Members Conference in Liverpool this afternoon. This is a year of historic milestones, so it was great to address the biggest conference of Black Trade Unionists in Europe in this important year – 25 years of UNISON, 150 years of the TUC and 30 years of celebrating Black History in the UK. I’m proud that children today don’t just learn about Florence Nightingale, they also learn about Mary Seacole. And when they learn about Nelson, it’s more likely they’re talking about Mandela – the UNISON member – than the Admiral with the column. B...

London, who had seemed perfectly healthy at birth, woke up nine days later vomiting and struggling to breathe. They rushed her to their local children’s hospital. “The doctors did an ultrasound and found a large blood clot in her aorta that was blocking the flow of blood to her kidneys,” says Todd. “They said she was in near fatal condition when we arrived, but they put her on dialysis and were able to stabilize her.” Desperate for options The doctors in...
