Public service workers are falling way behind spiralling living costs
Commenting on the news today (Wednesday) that the consumer prices index rate of inflation rose by 4.2% in October, UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said: “The government has been passing off pay cuts for public service workers under the guise of wage rises. “The 3% increase for NHS staff is a pay cut in all but name. It doesn’t even keep pace with the cost of living and is no way to deal with the staffing crisis. “Council and school staff have been offered less than half the rate of inflation and many public services are still enduring a pay freeze. “Care is on its knees and the workers w...

Blog: The Living Wage increase – still a long way to go on fair pay
Living Wage Week is the annual celebration of the Living Wage movement. It’s always a good time for us to take stock, as UNISON has a long history of campaigning for a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s (or night’s) work, to prevent in-work poverty and exploitative low wages. This week, the new Living Wage rates were announced. This means a pay increase for about 300,000 working people – up 40p to £9.90 across the UK, and £11.05 in London. There are now 9,000 real Living Wage employers, but we have much further to go and there is much more to do to eradicate low pay in the UK. Low pay is still a fact of life f...

A New Generation of Nuclear Reactors Could Hold the Key to a Green Future
On a conference-room whiteboard in the heart of Silicon Valley, Jacob DeWitte sketches his startup’s first product. In red marker, it looks like a beer can in a Koozie, stuck with a crazy straw. In real life, it will be about the size of a hot tub, and made from an array of exotic materials, like zirconium and uranium. Under carefully controlled conditions, they will interact to produce heat, which in turn will make electricity—1.5 megawatts’ worth, enough to power a neighborhood or a factory. DeWitte’s little power plant will run for a decade without refueling and, amazingly, will emit no carbon. &...

Above-inflation pay rise is key to nurse numbers
Commenting on the mid-year registration data released today (Tuesday) by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, UNISON national nursing officer Stuart Tuckwood said: “The substantial rise in the number of nurses and midwives leaving since last year is worrying. “It’s likely many feel unable to cope with the current pressures and neither feel valued by the government nor their employers. Pay must rise ahead of inflation to persuade staff to stay and new applicants to join. “More than 10,000 nurses have been recruited from outside Europe in the space of six months, bringing welcome expertise.

Blog: Phased down and out at COP26
As proceedings ended at COP26 late on Saturday night, the Glasgow Climate Pact joined a long list of previous agreements, arrived at by world leaders, that have failed to ensure global temperatures stop rising. The sum of all the commitments given before and during the two-week jamboree is that the Earth is heading for a 2.4 degree increase rather than being held back to 1.5 degrees. This, according to the prime minister of Barbados, will be a death sentence for many small island communities.

The right to strike must be protected in the new crime bill
UNISON is fighting to protect the right to strike as the controversial new Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts bill reaches its crucial debate stage in the House of Lords this Monday (15 November). The bill spans a wide range of areas and would introduce legislation on several issues that UNISON has long campaigned on and would support, such as defending frontline public sector workers from attack. However, the bill also contains two clauses (55 and 56) which redefine the conditions in which police may take restrictive action against public assemblies. These conditions include those gatherings that, “cause serious disru...

The United Nations Climate Conference (COP26) has put climate justice at the centre of the news agenda for a fortnight, but for UNISON members working at the Environment Agency, adapting to climate changes in the UK is part of their job, every single day.

Over this time, she has seen how conversations on climate change have rapidly evolved. “When I first started doing this job, people hardly talked about climate change.

UNISON has joined the TUC and others in warning COP26 president Alok Sharma that he is “putting progress at risk” during this month’s climate talks by neglecting international commitments to a just transition in the move towards low-carbon economies.

However, trade union delegates within the climate conference, including UNISON’s Stephen Smellie, fear that just transition is being ...

NASA Delays Return to the Moon to 2025 (at the Earliest)
(CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.) — NASA on Tuesday delayed putting astronauts back on the moon until 2025 at the earliest, missing the deadline set by the Trump administration. The space agency had been aiming for 2024 for the first moon landing by astronauts in a half-century. In announcing the delay, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said Congress did not provide enough money to develop a landing system for its Artemis moon program and more money is needed for its Orion capsule. In addition, a legal challenge by Jeff Bezos’ rocket company, Blue Origin, stalled work for months on the Starship lunar landing system under dev...

New discoveries are constantly reshaping and enriching the story of our pastThe novelist and philosopher Iris Murdoch oncewrote that the study of early Greek history “sets a special challenge to the disciplined mind. It is a game with very few pieces, where the skill of the player lies in complicating the rules.” The same could be said of the study of Britain’s Roman period, a long, often overlooked span lasting nearly 300 years. Every year, archaeological discoveries are made that complicate the rules of the game. Sometimes, these are so significant and surprising that they completely overthrow what everyone thought...
