Reserved (low pay) seat threshold for 2019
UNISON’s principles of proportionality and fair representation means that some seats on elected bodies, including the NEC, are reserved for women and low-paid members, so that the make-up fairly represents the wider union.

The median gross weekly earnings figure for 2018/19 has been calculated in the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings at £460, a 2.6% increase on last year. This means the cut-off wage for election to reserved (low pay) seats in the union is now £10.20 an hour  ...

A Macrophage-Derived Factor from Young Mice Speeds Bone Regeneration in Older Mice
The innate immune cells called macrophages are known to be important coordinators of regeneration, in addition to their role in protecting tissues from invading pathogens. In recent years, researchers have investigated the altered behavior of macrophages with aging, and linked this to a range of age-related conditions. In older individuals, macrophages are more likely to be inflammatory and aggressive rather than acting to assist tissue regeneration, and the consequence is a much reduced capacity for tissue maintenance. If the methods by which macrophages act to induce greater regenerative activity on the part of ot...
