Blog: Time to stop FE cuts and invest in education
There are few things that can benefit someone more than education. To learn, gaining fresh experience and knowledge, is something that benefits both the learner and the whole of society. An educated society is one that can do more together. In our education system, further education (FE) plays a vital role. It supports both young people and adult learners through a huge range of qualifications in a variety of different subjects and skills. FE colleges are more likely to educate pupils with special educational needs, take on more students who receive free school meals and often cater for those who haven’t achieved th...

Former Dynasty star highlights UNISON ’s Pay Up Now! campaign
A new UNISON film, featuring former Dynasty actor Stephanie Beacham, takes a tongue-in-cheek look at why the government should give teaching assistants, paramedics, refuse collectors and other public service workers a pay rise. The two-minute satirical Pat on the Back film highlights the government’s hypocritical attitude to public servants – commending their dedication and hard work, yet refusing to lift the public sector pay cap, says UNISON. But behind UNISON’s spoof film is a serious message. Low pay not only harms individual employees and their families, it means services are run down as staff desert...

It’s Living Wage Week, which means new rates have been announced for the real living wage (£8.75 an hour across the UK and £10.20 in London), and it’s when organisations throughout the country take time to celebrate the value and importance of paying workers a basic salary they can live on. That’s what the living wage is all about – being able to live on what you earn. It should be a simple ask. In fact, in 2017, in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, it should be a given. Yet every year unions are forced to demand – once again – that businesses pay decent wages and...

Social workers speak out
“Social workers have been on the receiving end of austerity from two key directions. We’ve seen our local resources cut – statutory services cut, early help services, cuts to voluntary agencies we work with and children’s centres. But we also see families facing increased financial hardship: cuts to benefits, welfare cap, bedroom tax, huge problems with housing. So we see more and more families coming into our remit because of these environmental factors. You can’t deny the link between austerity and people’s lives getting harder and harder. So to put £23 million into this feels re...

Reserved (low pay) seat threshold for 2017/18
UNISON’s principles of proportionality and fair representation means that some seats on elected bodies, including the NEC, are reserved for women and low-paid members, so that the make-up fairly represents the wider union. The definition of “low paid” reflects the median gross weekly earnings for all jobs (full time or part time) and is revised each year. The median gross weekly earnings figure for 2017/18 has been calculated in the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings at £448.60, a 2.3% increase on last year. This means the cut-off wage for election to reserved (low pay) seats in the union is now &p...
