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...

The government should reject Trump ’s dangerous plan for Israel/Palestine
The rights of Palestinian people have always been an international priority for UNISON. Our union has consistently called for a two-state solution, with a viable Palestinian state alongside Israel, in line with decades of UN resolutions and international law on the issue. So it was with extreme concern we noted the launch of President Trump’s so called ‘Deal of the Century’ at the end of January; an unashamed attempt to normalise a brutal occupation which has denied the Palestinian people their freedom, justice and rights for over half a century. These one-sided proposals – drawn up by President T...

Palestine: obstacles to health in Gaza
“Diana is a newborn baby and the last girl of the Al-Gazaoui family. She has an intolerance to breast milk.

After they run out of the milk substitute, Diana develops cardiac problems and her health deteriorates rapidly”.   Palestinians in Gaza have to face a maze of obstacles to access secondary health services outside the Gaza Strip.
