  • Tell Medway Council & Medway Norse – Guarantee safety of refuse collectors & public now!
    Unite reps are pleased to announce that we have won in our dispute at Medway Norse and have ensured a safe environment for the staff and the local community. Thanks to the strength of workers who stood together and the support of people like you who signed our petition, Medway Norse have agreed to pay all staff for yesterday and today regardless if they went to work or not, they have implemented social distancing measures, PPE (such as hand Sanitizer, Gloves, Wipes and Masks) have been made available, and all staff are guaranteed toilet access even if they close the toilets to the public. On behalf of Unite the Union, we would like to send a big thank you to everyone who signed and shared the petition and backed our members to get this victory.

  • Don't cut fire services in Devon and Somerset
    On 10 January, Devon and Somerset Fire Authority voted on the proposed cuts to Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service. Thanks to tireless campaigning from our members and supporters, we saved 6 stations from closure, over 100 jobs, and stopped three whole-time stations open 24-hours a day from being downgraded to day-crewed stations. We also stopped the third fire engines at Bridgwater, Taunton, Torquay and Yeovil stations from being removed entirely, which will now be replaced by an alternative vehicle. Unfortunately some of the cuts were still pushed through - such as the closure of Budleigh Salterton station – but we’re proud of what we’ve achieved.

  • Stop cuts to South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service
    We have some fantastic news. On Monday, South Yorkshire Fire Authority voted against cutting the number of firefighters riding a fire engine from five to four. Together, we've saved 84 firefighter jobs and helped to keep South Yorkshire residents safe. We couldn't have done it without your support.
