The Health Service Group Executive of the public-service workers' union Unison voted on 8 September to recommend "Yes" to Agenda for Change. The recommendation goes to a special conference of the health sector of Unison in London on 7 October. Agenda for Change is the government's proposal to restructure health-service pay. It would cut pay rates for a sizeable proportion of posts, and bring in longer working hours for a number of health service workers.
The first-ever issue of an activists' bulletin for UNISON members produced by AWL UNISON members is now available. Covering the latest developments in the local government pension scheme campaign, and the urgent need for UNISON members to organise to defend the NHS, it is essential reading for UNISON members.
