Decision

Conference notes the charter sets minimum standards to protect the dignity and quality of life for care clients and the workers who care for them.

Conference notes that over 40 councils across the UK have signed the charter.

Conference believes the charter is a positive development for UNISON members, and is a useful tool for organising and recruitment.

Conference calls on the SGE to:

1)Carry out an analysis of the impact on services and staff in those councils where the charter has been adopted;.

2)To increase campaigning efforts to ensure more councils sign up to the charter in the coming year.
