Blog: Let ’ s remember those who have died because of their work
Today, on International Workers’ Memorial Day (IWMD), UNISON and the whole trade union movement will lead the way in showing respect for all those who have sadly lost their lives while working.

Health staff  risk being driven out by unfair mileage rates and new parking charges, says UNISON     
Health staff face a perfect storm as some NHS trusts in England and Northern Ireland bring back parking charges, and mileage rates across the UK fail to cover soaring fuel prices, says UNISON today (Tuesday). The union says the cost of getting to work and driving to carry out their duties, combined with low pay and soaring prices, are draining the finances of health workers, forcing some to look for jobs elsewhere. A motion to be debated later today at UNISON’s annual health conference in Liverpool highlights the impact of rapidly rising fuel costs on staff as the cost-of-living crisis bites.
