UNISON will stand up to ‘laddism and misogyny’ typified by Trump and Johnson
Speaking at UNISON’s national women’s conference in Bournemouth, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis today (Friday) said: “This year’s conference is the biggest in a quarter of a century. More than a thousand women from all walks of life and every corner of the country are here to defy those who said, ‘unions are for only for men’. “Today UNISON has a million women shaping our agenda and driving us forward. “It’s mostly women pushing back against the backdoor privatisation of the NHS. It’s mostly women in Northern Ireland who took seven long weeks of action to d...

Prentis shares the ❤ with UNISON ’s women
“UNISON women have always been my inspiration. Whatever path we take, I will always walk with you.” Dave Prentis was addressing the union’s women’s conference in Bournemouth as Heart Unions – and Heart UNISON – week neared its conclusion. And the general secretary was full of heart for the 1,000-plus representatives of the union’s million-plus female members. He said “I can’t think of a better place to spend Valentine’s Day than with all of you!” to warm laughter and applause. “Over a thousand women here today … our women’s conference grow...

UNISON women steady themselves for the fight
The first session of this year’s UNISON’s women’s conference opened in Bournemouth this afternoon, with Catrina Murray for the national women’s committee asking delegates: “Remember that song, Things can only get better? I think we’ll find that things can get worse”. December’s election victory for the Conservatives – and what it will mean for women – was a thread that ran through the afternoon’s business. While continued austerity and pain was the major expectation, there was also a determination to fight back, harder than ever. Benefits was just one area t...

UNISON leading the way
“UNISON is again leading the way on employment rights,” general secretary Dave Pentis told the UNISON national executive council when it met in London today, on the same day that the union’s legal representatives appeared at the Supreme Court over careworkers’ right to be paid the minimum wage for sleep-in shifts. On top of that, Mr Prentis told the meeting, UNISON is taking more industrial action than any other union. Despite the 2017 Trade Union Act, designed to make it harder for workers to take action, he said, in more and more local disputes, mainly involving women, the union is reaching the 50...

Fair pay rise for council staff would be affordable, says UNISON
The pay claim for council workers is affordable and will provide benefits for the wider economy across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, according to a new analysis published today (Wednesday) by UNISON. UNISON, Unite and GMB are calling for wages to rise to £10 per hour for the lowest paid local government workers, with a 10% rise for other members of staff for 2020/21. New research by Landman Economics, commissioned by UNISON, shows the actual net cost of the claim is less than half (49%) the overall projected cost of £1.6bn. If council workers got a decent pay rise, central government would save hundreds ...

Unions reject ‘disappointing’ council pay offer
The three unions representing council workers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland have today (Wednesday) rejected the 2% initial pay offer made by the local government employers. Last summer UNISON, GMB and Unite – which between them have more than a million local government members – submitted the pay claim for 2020/21. If accepted, this would mean that £10 an hour would be the lowest rate for council staff from this April. Everyone else would receive a 10% wage rise. The three unions have now called on the local government employers to think again and come up with a better offer so talks can continue...
