Norfolk councillors’ pay decision branded ‘disgusting’ by UNISON

Union says move to increase councillors’ allowances by 11%, when budget faces £125m budget cuts, shows they are ‘far removed from what’s happening to local communities’

Blog: The Tories have nothing new to offer

The Prime Minister and her party have shown once again today that they have nothing new to offer. Her new year’s resolution should be to move aside, and give Labour a chance to govern in the interests of the many, not a dwindling Tory few.

Happy Christmas – and thank you for all you do

The time of year has come when most people take time off work, spend time with loved ones, relax and recharge their batteries for the year ahead. Yet for many UNISON members and other public servants, Christmas is a continuation of the working year. Instead of eating turkey or Quality Street, many of you will […]

Cliff Williams – we have lost one of our union’s best

Everyone who worked closely with Cliff will miss his counsel, his support and his commitment – and I know his words “leave it with me, I’ll sort it”, will echo around our union for years to come. All of us who worked with him and laughed with him will miss him. All of us who learned from him and relied on him will miss him. All of us will miss Cliff so, so much.

Living on a knife-edge – survey reveals what a pay rise would mean to NHS employees

Being able to feed their families, afford dental treatment, repair their cars or pay off debts are some of the things that health workers could afford if the government gave them a decent pay rise, according to a survey released today (Sunday) by UNISON. UNISON says the findings expose the financial hardship suffered by NHS […]

Health unions react to NHS workforce strategy draft plans

Health unions are today (Wednesday) renewing their call for a coherent strategy to improve recruitment and retention, equality and diversity, workloads, well-being and career prospects as the government publishes its workforce plans.  Over the last three years unions representing cleaners, nurses, doctors, radiographers, pharmacists, midwives, medical secretaries, paramedics, caterers, dental technicians, as well as porters, managers, […]

Disabled members response to Phillip Hammond’s comments

Last week at the Treasury select committee, Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond MP answered a question about the cause of poor productivity by implying that the UK’s poor productivity levels were the result of disabled people in the workforce. He said: “It is almost certainly the case that by increasing participation in the workforce, […]

UNISON responds to latest inflation figures

Commenting today (Tuesday) on the rise in inflation, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “With inflation at its highest level in six years, many public service workers are facing a bleak Christmas. “With wages now lagging even further behind the cost of living, the government’s punishing pay cap is pushing families to the brink. It’s […]

Blog: Coming together for the benefit of our members

Different people from different professions and backgrounds, all with different skills, coming together, pooling their resources and their energy for the benefit of all UNISON members and the services they provide. That’s what our union is about when it’s at it’s best. That’s what I saw in Halton today.

Give councils and schools the cash to fund a decent pay rise and protect services

The government needs to recognise the importance of the jobs council and school workers do

Agenda for Change is the name given to the new national NHS pay and terms and conditions system.

It will introduce new pay bands and harmonised terms and conditions for NHS workers.

The system has been negotiated by government health departments and UNISON, together with other health unions.

UNISON wins dental nurse fee deal

 UNISON achieved a major breakthrough in its campaign to win registration payments for all dental nurses when NHS Direct agreed to pay Band 4 dental nurses £38 towards the cost of their £96 annual registration fee to the General Dental Council.

The deal brings such nurses in line with the arrangements put in place for dental nurses on Band 5 or above through the multi-year pay deal, which was agreed following a ballot of members in 2008.

UNISON will be looking to build on this agreement with NHS Direct by pursuing payment of professional clinical registration allowances for the entire dental nurse workforce across the health service through negotiations at the NHS Staff Council.
