Thousands of health workers across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be looking to the Prime Minister to announce his decision on the long-awaited NHS pay rise in the coming days, says UNISON today (Wednesday).

Conference ends with urgent call for fairer workplaces
When the pandemic is finally over, workplaces need to be made a lot more fairer for the people who have helped the country through the crisis, UNISON delegates heard today. Lilian Macer opened a debate on a composite motion made up of submissions from her own Scotland region and the Newcastle Hospitals branch, each addressing the need to create fairer workplaces. She said that it was UNISON members who had kept communities safe “in the eye of the COVID storm”. And yet the crisis of the last 15 months had shown more clearly than ever the unfairness that exists for so many of those workers. For instance, accordin...

Care employers still not giving sick pay to Covid-hit staff, says UNISON survey          
A third of care staff are getting less than £100 a week – and some no pay at all – for having to shield or self-isolate during the pandemic, according to a UNISON survey published today (Monday). The findings – from over 4,000 workers in the UK, including those in care homes and out in the community – also show employees face pressure from bosses to go into work, despite displaying virus symptoms or needing to self-isolate. Separate evidence seen by UNISON confirms large care companies and many smaller ones across the country are refusing to pay full normal wages for staff affected by Cov...
