  • Suspend all strike pay deductions
    This is important at a time when university staff have rallied and gone beyond their contractual duties and normal working hours to ensure that all essential work including teaching has continued whilst the University has taken measures to address the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Several universities in the UK (including the University of St. Andrews, King’s College London, and Birkbeck) have already announced an amnesty on pay deductions in recognition of the exceptional demands on their staff. We ask that the University of Kent follow these examples by granting an amnesty on strike pay deductions given that exceptional demands on their staff are likely to be ongoing for some time and to ensure staff morale and goodwill at this time.

  • Balfour Beatty to make work safe for employees
    Workers are more important than the non essential work that they are being asked to carry out. A persons life is more important than a pothole.

  • Pay Self-Quarantining PGR Tutors Sick Leave
    The rapid spread of the COVID-19 represents a significant threat to the Cardiff University community. We are asking that Cardiff University management to guarantee full pay to PGR tutors who cannot work due to illness or self quarantining in the coming weeks and months. This will prevent PGR teachers from risking their health, and the health of other staff and students, and ensure the financial security of PGRs during this time. Join the UCU to demand universal paid sick leave for Cardiff University PGR teachers. https://www.ucu.org.uk/join

  • #SickPayForAll: Guarantee decent sick pay for every worker
    Workers affected by the coronavirus outbreak could have to go into quarantine or self-isolation to prevent the further spread of the virus. Right now millions of UK workers don’t earn enough to get this protection. And workers with existing sick pay schemes should be paid at the full rate offered by the employer while in isolation, and not be considered as on annual or unpaid leave. No one should worry about falling into debt or struggling to pay their bills when they’re ill or have to self-isolate. If people aren't compensated for the time spent at home, the risk people go to work and spread the illness increases. The government must ensure everyone gets decent sick pay, however much they earn.

  • 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.
