Paying to care? The real cost of motoring

The cost of running a car continues to get more and more expensive. People who need to run a car for their work are being hit by these costs, yet mileage rates have not kept up with inflation and fuel prices, leaving drivers out of pocket.

When staff are delivering essential health and care services, the burden of the cost of motoring should not fall on them.

In the UK we have a national minimum wage, which is the minimum pay per hour almost all workers are entitled to.

UNISON is exploring whether staff, who are paid the national minimum wage and running a car for work delivering health and care services, are effectively falling behind the minimum wage because these costs reduce their income.

We have developed a short survey for you to tell us a little about you and your driving.
