UNISON disappointed by pay offer for colleges in England
UNISON has today (Wednesday) expressed disappointment at the pay offer put forward by the Association of Colleges. The union believes the offer of a one per cent increase or £250, whichever is greater, will plunge college staff further into poverty. UNISON head of education Jon Richards said: “This offer is hugely disappointing. It will do little to lift workers out of debt and poverty, particularly as colleges are under no obligation to implement it. “Many college employees have had to take on second jobs or borrow money from family or friends as they struggle to pay their bills. “Colleges know goo...

Bernie Sanders Just Proposed Single-Payer Health Care. What ’s That?
Sen. Bernie Sanders will unveil the latest version of his single-payer health care plan on Wednesday. The bill, which has garnered 15 co-sponsors in the Senate, would shift the U.S. health care system from one in which most people under age 65 are insured privately—typically through their jobs—into one in which all Americans are insured through the federal government. “Under Bernie’s plan, Americans will benefit from the freedom and security that comes with finally separating health insurance from employment.

U.K. Lawmakers Have Backed a Key Brexit Bill but a Fight Still Looms
(LONDON) — British lawmakers voted a key Brexit bill past its first big hurdle in Parliament early Tuesday. But many legislators branded the bill a government power grab, and vowed to change it before it becomes law. After a debate that stretched past midnight, the House of Commons backed the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill by a vote of 326 to 290. That means lawmakers approve the bill in principle, but the government will now face attempts to amend it before a final vote later this year. A key plank in the Conservative government’s Brexit plans, the bill aims to convert thousands of EU laws and regulations in...
