Barnet UNISON were invited to present a workshop at the UNISON National Social Care Forum on privatisation in Social Care. No guessing what the topic of the workshop....................Fremantle!
Before the workshops began, Ivan Lewis Minister for Social Care addressed the Forum. Afterwards we had some time to talk to him about our campaign. We asked him what the Government should do when Third Sector employers contracted to provide public services wipe out Single Status terms and conditions (Equal Pay) at the stroke of the pen.
Something must be done. All the hard work our Union has done to address Equal Pay should not be easily discarded by private employers.
He promised to speak to our UNISON Head of Local Government Heather Wakefield
