Bedroom Tax

The following motion on the Bedroom Tax was supported by our Branch Executive meeting in June 2013:

"This branch notes the impact of the "bedroom tax" on many housing benefit claimants living in social housing. The tax will cause huge hardship to many tenants, many of whom will simply be unable to afford to pay it.

This branch calls on Nottingham City Council / Nottingham City Homes to adopt a policy of not evicting tenants who fall into rent arrears because of the additional costs of the bedroom tax.

This branch also agrees to encourage UNISON members to get involved in local community campaigns against the bedroom tax."

We will contact Nottingham City Council and Nottingham City Homes in the near future.
