Blog: United Utilities workers are on strike to defend their right to a fair pension
Today, UNISON members at United Utilities are on strike to defend their right to a fair pension. It’s not a decision they’ve taken lightly, but the staff of the UK’s largest listed water company face being hammered by pension proposals that could leave some as much as £10,000 a year worse off.

Privatising overnight supervision in probation hostels risks public safety
UNISON has warned today (Monday) that the privatisation of night time supervision in probation hostels is compromising public safety.

Until last month the National Probation Service ran night time supervision in probation hostels.
