IT SYSTEM DOWN

Unfortunately out IT system is currently down, and has been since last Friday.  We hope to be up and running again mid-week.  This has obvious implications for emails that may have been sent.  Please contact the office on 0208 496 4703 if your issue is urgent.  We will advise you as soon as we are up and running again.

Many thanks for your patience.  We are working to get this sorted out as soon as possible.

“using the union was a positive experience” – writes a member

Joining UNISON is the best decision I have made in years. Having worked in the Private Care Sector for several years, I had often thought about joining UNISON but felt that it would not be worth my while.

Thanks to our members for their support on 10 July

WF contingent on march up town2Thanks to all our members who took strike action to support the campaign for fair pay last Thursday, especially to those that joined our picket lines, came to the local rally and/or travelled up to the BBC to join the march and rally. Despite the poor weather, good morale and determination were in evidence. We got some good coverage on the national TV news and lots of time was given over to the issue on radio.

There will likely be another call to take further action later in the summer – probably September / October time, unless the employers come back to the table with an improved offer. We will wait and see.

In the meantime, why not write to your MP and your local councillor to tell them why you deserve a pay rise and how unfair it is that low paid workers are being made to pay for an economic crisis caused by the behaviour of the banks and the wealthy. Ours is a just cause so let’s continue with the good fight.

Visit our gallery to see more pictures from the day.
