• Tell Trump: Hands off our NHS
    Our NHS is not for sale. Not now, not ever. NHS leaders warned weeks ago that hospitals and patients will pay billions more for drugs in a post-Brexit US-UK deal. Now we have it in black and white. Leaked government documents reveal that Trump and his big pharma cronies want to charge our NHS a lot more for vital drugs. And the US wants "total market access" to public services as a condition for opening new trade talks. That’s code for carving them up and selling them off to the highest bidder. It's never been more important to stand up for our NHS and demand that any future trade deals include cast iron guarantees for public services.

  • We Are With You: don't break your pay promises!
    Belinda Phipps is CEO of We Are With You- she earns around £140,000 per year. Meanwhile, ex-NHS staff working for We Are With You in Wigan and Leigh stand to lose £150,000 during the course of the NHS Agenda for Change three year pay deal (April 2018- April 2021). We will lose an average of £7,870 each during the course of Wigan Council's contract with We Are With You, with some of us losing out on as much as £10,974. This is simply wrong and across five years, will suck £230,000 out of the local economy whilst We Are With You directs funding towards costly rebrands and its London headquarters. We work hard for We Are With You in Wigan and Leigh to ensure that local people recover from addiction, regaining health, self esteem and becoming fully functioning members of our society. We work in this field because we care and because it's rewarding to support recovery, but we deserve to make a decent living. When we transferred over to We Are With You (formerly known as Addaction) from the NHS, we were promised the NHS rate for the job, but We Are With You have gone back on their word. "Supporting people to overcome drug and alcohol addiction is an incredibly tough job and makes a difference for every single one of us in Wigan. "We Are With You’s employees deserve the pay settlement they were promised when they moved from the NHS to We Are With You". Lisa Nandy, Wigan MP We deserve a decent wage for doing what is an important job for our communities. Please sign the petition to support us. #WeAreNotWithYou #KeepYourPayPromise #BelindaFibs #WeWontPayYou

  • Don't Change Our Nurses Rosters
    The proposed changes to rosters will have a detrimental effect on the work life balance of employees. The new rosters will potentially impact on increased childcare costs, travel costs, laundry and food costs.

  • Support Lincolnshire Health Visitors
    Lincolnshire health visitors are specialist trained nurses responsible for children's health from 0-6 years with specialisms including dealing with complex safeguarding for families amongst many other facets to their role supporting communities. The health visitors are currently taking strike action in a fight against a 2.5 year pay freeze that has been implemented on them by their employer Lincolnshire County Council. The health visitors are fighting for their profession and to be paid for their skills used in serving the community which Lincolnshire County Council covers. It is a well know fact that since councils have taken control over the health visiting community service that they have sought to cut costs and deskill health visitors. This is reflected by the 25% loss of health visitors from the service since 2015.

  • Luton & Dunstable Hospital – Bring us back
    Cleaners, caterers and housekeepers are proud to keep Luton & Dunstable Hospital clean and safe, ensuring that patients, staff and visitors are well fed. The hospital couldn’t function without us. But rather than being rewarded for our vital work, we are denied the decent pay, terms and conditions enjoyed by directly employed staff. To save money, the Trust outsourced our services to private contractor Engie. Any savings have come directly out of our wages and the quality of the service we can provide – Engie’s shareholders are getting paid instead. The contract is due to end in Autumn 2020. The Trust can choose to extend Engie’s contract, put our services out to tender for another private contractor or bring the services back in house. Please call on the Trust to bring the services back in house so we can provide good services, without having to do so on worse conditions than our NHS colleagues. The Trust is deciding our fate in the next few weeks. Please help us put pressure on them to make the right decision, to bring us back in-house, by signing our petition.

  • General Election to Elect Our Prime Minister
    Boris Johnson is a right wing symbol for attacks on the most vulnerable sections of our society. Unelected, with no mandate equates to a free hand in decimating the Rights of workers, the NHS, the Climate. All our communities are in danger from this.

  • Bedford Hospital - Don’t Outsource Our Domestics or Cut Their Existing Hours!
    We, NHS workers and users recognise the hard work domestics do every day to keep the hospital and public safe. We support their fight to keep their jobs in the NHS. When hospital cleaning services are privatised infection rates go up and workers’ pay is cut. We also stand against the hospital’s attempt to make the domestics paid their own nationally agreed NHS pay deal by cutting their bank/overtime hours. Bedford Hospital is targeting its lowest-paid workers, many of whom are migrant women — we believe this is an attack on equality.

  • #RescueSuffolkFire - Sign the Statement of Support
    Fire services across the Eastern Region are being cut to the bone as a result of austerity and reduced funding. Yet attempts by Suffolk Fire & Rescue Service (SFRS) managers, to cut costs and slash budgets, have seen attacks on the emergency frontline service and firefighter terms and conditions in Suffolk to a level we aren’t seeing in other fire services in the region. Suffolk fire chiefs have delivered & imposed cuts in such a way that Suffolk firefighters are struggling to provide similar levels of fire cover to that which we see in neighbouring counties. A life or business in Suffolk isn’t worth less than elsewhere. Why do Suffolk residents receive a lower level of fire & rescue response than their Eastern Region neighbours? Suffolk residents are now experiencing the longest waiting times for a fire engine in the East of England, and when one eventually does arrive, it’s now possible that it will only have a reduced crew of 3 firefighters on it, too few to effect rescues, with those crews being likely to have reduced or difficulty accessing the appropriate risk critical training. All at a time when the demand on the fire service service is on the increase. It isn’t right that Suffolk residents receive a worse standard of fire cover and emergency response than the rest of the region. It isn’t right that Suffolk firefighters are being asked to work to less safe standards than the rest of their Eastern colleagues. It isn’t right that the professional voice of Suffolk’s firefighters is being ignored We the undersigned demand Suffolk County Council and SFRS management take the following steps, as a minimum, to improve the situation in Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service: • Immediately stop mobilising fire engines crewed by only three firefighters. Five firefighters is the safe minimum number needed to safely tackle a fire and effect rescues. Any fewer poses a threat to the safety of firefighters and the public • Review emergency fire attendance times in Suffolk and how they can be improved, without detrimentally affecting the health and safety or terms and conditions of Suffolk firefighters • Review the delivery of risk critical training in Suffolk. Firefighters must have this risk-critical training and should not have to sacrifice their work-life balance to receive it • Review budgets and the allocation of funding to emergency front-line service in comparison to back room projects • Listen to staff and their elected representatives and abide by nationally agreed, collective, contractual agreements We aren't prepared to compromise on public or firefighter safety in Suffolk. Enough is enough and Suffolk firefighters and residents deserve better. #RescueSuffolkFire
