Disability Insurer Ordered To Produce Information Related To Reviewing Physicians
NEW YORK - A disability insurer must produce the salaries paid to its reviewing physicians in addition to the curriculum vitae for each reviewing physician because the information is relevant to the determination of whether the insurer's denial of a long-term disability claim was reasonable, a New York federal magistrate judge said Nov. 6 (Michele Weinberg v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, No. 17-8976, S.D. N.Y., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 189792). (Source: LexisNexis® Mealey's™ Disability Insurance Legal News)

Blog: Proud to stand with the Sirona Care workers
This morning I’ve been on the picket line with Sirona Care workers in Bath, where UNISON members are fighting cuts to their pay. The incredible care workers – 90% of them women – who I joined at a rally outside Bath Guildhall last night and stood with this morning, are the kind of people who make me so proud of our union. Every day they provide vital, life-changing care for some of the most vulnerable people in their community. In return they receive wages that are far too low, even before they’re slashed again as a result of cuts by their local Tory council. They’re now facing a hideous and ...

Epic new film depicts the events leading to the infamous Peterloo Massacre
Next year is the bicentenary of one of the most shameful episodes in English history – the Peterloo Massacre, in which 15 people were killed and hundreds seriously injured when sabre-wielding cavalry charged into a peaceful rally in Manchester, where working people were demanding the right to vote. Before that, and serving as a rousing prelude to the anniversary, there’s Peterloo. The new film by celebrated director Mike Leigh recounts the events leading to the massacre as well as the terrible day itself, from both sides.

A great October
Thousands of UNISON members across the country are better off after they and their union chalked up various victories in October. The month kicked off in fighting style, with traffic wardens – or civil enforcement officers to be technically correct – in the north London borough of Camden and care workers in Birmingham both embarking on strike action. In London, the union members were striking for a pay rise. In Birmingham, they were defending their jobs and hours from council cuts which see some lose nearly two thirds of their income. A two-day strike by hospital workers in Bolton, Lancashire, scored a clear v...

Time for a hero – meet Greenwich ’ s answer to Erin Brockovich
In 2012 a school cleaner from Greenwich noticed an error in her pay, and despite being told by everyone she spoke to that she was mistaken, kept pushing for the problem to be fixed. This week at a council meeting in Greenwich, Julie Stedman has been vindicated. The culmination of a six-year battle means that not only will she receive the extra pay she is owed, but around 5,000 low-paid, mostly female, workers across the borough will receive payouts worth millions, in a case that also has implications for councils across England. It started in June 2012 when Julie was moved from a full-year to a term-time only contract, and...

Some council staff struggling on low wages are resorting to taking their possessions to pawnbrokers, says a UNISON report published today (Thursday).

This week, UNISON members working for IFM Bolton are on strike. IFM is a company owned by the local NHS trust – a “subco” – which employs over 300 caterers, cleaners and porters at the Royal Bolton hospital. It’s an example of why our union has campaigned against these companies and forced a pause on more of them being set up – because just as we’ve always warned, once workers are outside of the NHS, they’re worse off. NHS workers are covered by nationally negotiated pay deals – like the recent one that ensured that over 100,000 low-paid NHS staff are paid at least the...
