NCC Pay, Terms and Conditions Proposals

branch-squareThank you to those members who attended the consultation meetings that recently took place. I am pleased to say that there is overwhelming support from members of all three unions to continue to oppose the council proposals.

Please find attached copy of a letter that the trade unions sent to elected members yesterday.

We will also be writing to local MP's.  We will be organising further consultation meetings in the next few weeks as it was clear that many members did not fully understand the implications of the council's proposals.

Please do your best to attend a meeting or contact your local rep or the Branch if you would like clarification on any of the issues.

Thank you.

Christina Sanna
Branch Secretary

Social Work Watch 2016

branch-squareWednesday 21 September

UNISON is teaming up with Community Care to run the second 'Social Work Watch'. On 21st September we want as many social work staff as possible to take part by filling in a survey to tell us about their day. We will ask them to give details of their caseload on that day, how many hours they worked, what they did, how it made a difference, and the pressures and challenges they faced.

We will use the findings to highlight for the public and policy makers the challenges and pressures social work staff face every day. We will also use it to celebrate the value and importance of the work they do, in spite of the cuts, staff shortages and media hostility.
