For fairness and democracy – the UNISON Scotland Manifesto for Local Government Elections 2017
Our challenge to all parties in the local government elections – policies to combat austerity and deliver vital public services for our communities.
From 1 October 2016 social care workers should be be paid £8.25 per hour.
If you work in social care and are not being paid the Living Wage – or if your terms and conditions have been altered as a result of receiving the Living Wage – then you need to let us know.

Signposting the ways Scotland could limit the damage
The Conservative Government’s austerity programme will result in around a further £2 billion of cuts to Scotland’s public services. There is a broad consensus across Scotland that austerity is damaging to public services and the economy. UNISON Scotland is part of the campaign against austerity.
