Blog: These victories show that this is a union on the march
Recent days have brought two significant victories for UNISON members. Two long fights – vitally important for the future of public services – have been won by our union. Birmingham Care Workers have seen plans that put their jobs and wages at risk axed. And the government have announced that probation services are being brought back in house. Fighting attacks on low-paid workers and ending the scourge of privatisation are core to our union’s aims and values. That’s why these victories – like recent successes from Sodexo to Sandwell – make me so proud of our union, our members and what w...

UNISON recommends higher education staff reject ‘inadequate’ pay offer
A pay offer to higher education staff falls far short of the annual rise they deserve as university bosses have seen their salaries soar, says UNISON. The union’s higher education executive has now agreed unanimously to recommend the “inadequate” 2019/20 pay offer from UCEA higher education national employers should be rejected. UNISON will now undertake a consultation to ask members what they are prepared to do in order to achieve improvements to the offer, which is way below the claim jointly submitted by unions. The decision was taken following the results of UNISON’s largest ever survey of staff...

The claim, drawn up by UNISON, Unite and the GMB, also calls for the bottom two points in the pay scale (salary points and eight) to be abolished. This would lift the lowest pay among police staff from £17,262 a year to £18,078, on the current pay scale, or £18,982 if the 5% claim was met in full. The unions point out that the bottom pay points “do not compare favourably with the lowest pay points in Police Scotland and in the NHS,” and warn that pay risks becoming mo...

The Gender Pay Gap for Doctors Is Getting Worse. Here ’s What Women Make Compared to Men
Despite the often-quoted statistic that women in the U.S. make 80 cents for every dollar earned by men, the actual figure varies depending on a woman’s race, geographic location and industry. Women of color, for example, have an even larger pay gap than white women. And women in certain fields, such as financial services, are further from pay parity than their peers in other professions. Medicine has traditionally been one of those imbalanced fields — and the latest physician compensation report from Medscape, a medical news site for healthcare professionals, finds that the situation is getting worse for many d...

Twenty years ago today, the National Minimum Wage (NMW) came into force. For the first time, there was a legal wage floor below which working people should never fall.
