UNISON to step up campaigns on pay and social care reform
UNISON’s number one priority remains the support of members who have been delivering public services for over a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, general secretary Christina McAnea told the union’s national executive council (NEC) at an online meeting today (Wednesday). But the union is also focussed on what will happen in the post-COVID recovery, particularly in terms of members’ pay, and it will work to ensure public services and the interests of the union’s members are central to the elections taking place across the UK on 6 May. The union also continues to “look outwards”, with the ge...

Credit: GGGIBy Frank Rijsberman, Ingvild Solvang and Bertha Wakisa ChiudzaSEOUL, Republic of Korea, Mar 8 2021 (IPS) As the global effort to address climate change has strengthened over the last few years, so has the realization that rising temperatures and climactic disruptions disproportionately impact women, particularly in developing countries, as they tend to be more dependent upon natural resources and are thus overrepresented in resource-intensive economic sectors. Furthermore, inherent in gender inequality are disadvantages for and discrimination against women in all facets of society, including in the economy and ...

Conclusions: These results indicate that estimates of the degree of commitment to measures designed to counter the spread of the disease may be significantly inflated by social desirability in direct self-reports. Indirect questioning techniques with higher levels of confidentiality seem helpful in obtaining more realistic estimates of the degree to which people follow the recommended personal hygiene measures. More realistic estimates of compliance can help to inform and to adjust public information campaigns on COVID-19 hygiene recommendations. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))
