• Make Hull buses free for the duration of the COP climate talks: Daren Hale
    Public transport is the key to decarbonising our region and fighting climate change. But our public transport system won’t be around long if we aren’t willing to fight for it. Privatised bus companies are cutting routes, and ridership is going through the floor. That’s why we’re calling on our local politicians to make bus travel free, for all of us, for the duration of the UN COP26 climate talks in Glasgow this November. The more people use and value our bus network, the harder it is for private interests to take it away from us. Show our buses some love this November, and help us fight for free bus travel during COP26.

  • Clarks - end fire and rehire
    Clarks is a staple brand on the British high street, with a history dating back over a century. Many children will be able to remember being taken to Clarks for their school shoes. Their customers have frequently rewarded them with loyalty. So too have their workforce - accepting no pay rises for some years. The workers most adversely impacted by these changes are those who have been employees for decades, sticking with the company through thick and thin, stepping up in the last year during the challenging pandemic period. Fire-and-rehire is no way to thank employees or your customers. The workers at Clarks deserve better.

  • East Lancashire NHS Trust: Fully honour your agreement and pay scientists fairly
    Throughout the pandemic, biomedical scientists have been on the frontline of our NHS, analysing patient blood samples and carrying out covid-19 testing. Their work has been critical to keeping us safe. But the NHS Trust has let these key workers down. They have acted in bad faith and failed to fully honour the agreement to upgrade them from band 5 to band 6 and pay the back pay they are entitled to. After exploring all options to resolve the issue, Unite members were left with no choice but to take industrial action. And now the Trust is wasting public funds trying to break the strike. These workers need your support. Can you add your voice and demand East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust honour their agreement?

  • Demand £10 an hour for cleaning staff at the University of Sheffield
    Throughout the pandemic, cleaning staff at the University of Sheffield have worked hard to keep others safe. They work unsociable hours, are overwhelmingly women workers and have no path to improved pay on the current university pay scale. Now, with the support of Unite the Union, these key workers are organising to improve their pay and conditions. But they'll need your support to win. If they can afford to pay Vice-Chancellor Koen Lamberts £285,000 a year, they can afford to pay cleaning staff £10 an hour. The university has no excuse not to recognise the critical work cleaners have done throughout the pandemic. All workers deserve dignity and respect - please add your name to support cleaning staff and their campaign for £10 an hour. This petition is just the beggining. Add your name and join the campaign. Work at the University of Sheffield? Not a member yet? Please join Unite here and support our campaign: https://join.unitetheunion.org/

  • Fair Tips at Pizza Express
    Because we believe tips should be shared fairly according to the democratic will of the workers affected, not imposed by a company who wants to use our tips to attract kitchen workers who deserve a pay rise.

  • TfL & LUL Pension defence
    Unite the Union is calling on all members to join our campaign to defend the TfL & LUL pension fund. We are calling on the TfL Pension review body to recommend "no action". Our pension must not be used to pay for the Covid-19 pandemic, TfL & LUL workers were heralded as hero's for keeping the transport system moving during lockdown. They must not now be asked to pay for the pandemic with a reduction in pension benefits.

  • Stronger legal rights to flexible working
    Four out of five workers want to work flexibly and 92 per cent of mums who worked flexibly told us they would find it difficult or impossible to do their job without it. But current flexible working rights are way too limited – workers only have the right to request flexibility after 6 months in the job. Employers can turn down requests for a huge range of reasons – one in three requests for flexible working are turned down. So far, the government has failed to act, and its consultation on flexible working last year proposed making the right to request a day one right, but this is tinkering round the edges of a failed policy. People who need to work flexibly ­ - mums, dads, carers, disabled workers, older workers - need to know whether flexibility is available before they even apply for the job. A day one right to ask would mean having to ask at interview or one your first day in the job, and loads of people won't feel comfortable doing this for fear of rejection or being seen as 'awkward' by their employer. That’s why employers must be legally required to include flexible working options in job adverts and everyone needs the right to have flexible working, not just to ask. Secretary of State for Business, Kwasi Kwarteng, sets the rules here. He could bring legislation to build up our rights to flexible work. We’re calling on him to help make work more flexible for everyone.
