Strikers care for the UK

Care UK members took time out from their strike in Doncaster to take their case to their parent company's London head office

Striking Care UK workers from Doncaster took their pay dispute to London last week. Some 70 UNISON members are in the middle of a two-week strike demanding a "meaningful" pay rise for staff transferred from the NHS.

The campaign visit to London also helped them highlight their case in the media … getting wide coverage in Sunday's Observer.

Britain needs a pay rise... NOW

payrise2014

UNISON is making its final preparations for the 'Britain needs a pay rise' march and rally on 18 October. General secretary Dave Prentis is urging members to turn into "the biggest demo this country has ever seen." And with less than two weeks to go until the TUC-organised event in central London on 18 October, there's still time to make arrangements for a massive UNISON turnout.

Thousands of people will assemble from 11am on the Embankment near Blackfriars and move off at noon to Hyde Park, where there will be a rally with speakers and entertainment. Coordinated events are also taking place on the same day in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Youth Services - The damage

To coincide with International Youth Day, UNISON has published a new report on cuts in youth services, as part of our ‘Damage’ series.

The UK’s youth services: how cuts are removing opportunities for young people and damaging their lives, is now available online here.

The report is based on two pieces of research: a Freedom of Information request sent to every council in the UK, to find out the extent of the cuts in youth services since 2012, and a survey of UNISON members, asking questions about the impact of the cuts onyoung people and the communities they live in.

Among the key findings:

• More than 2000 youth service jobs have been lost since 2012

• 350 youth centres have closed as a result of the cuts

• 41,000 youth service places for young people have been cut

• At least 35,000 hours of outreach work by youth workers have been removed

• Youth service spending has been cut by £60 million since 2012, and since 2010 the figure is £259m
