Sign the Camden UNISON pay petition

We need to keep up the pressure for a decent pay rise  – 1% is not enough. Camden UNISON branch support the NJC pay claim for 2018, submitted by UNISON, GMB and Unite on behalf of council and school workers. Public sector pay has been restrained for far too long. We deserve a pay rise – we must increase the fight for a 5% increase. If you have not signed the petition  – see the link below. Continue reading

Scrap the pay cap – Unison meeting on 10th October @ 1pm in Rm 10.10 in 5 PS

Since 2012 the government has imposed a 1% pay cap on public sector workers, which came after a three year pay freeze. In that time, we have become thousands of pounds worse off,  yet the richest 1000 people in this country have increased their wealth by 14% in the last year alone.

We live in the fifth richest country in the world with 134 billionaires, but over a million people rely on foodbanks. Enough is enough. The pay cap needs to be scrapped.

Camden Unison is holding a meeting to hear what other workers are doing in the fight for decent pay, and discuss what we can do. Read this flyer, come along and join in!
