The country needs a transformative Labour government

Meaningful policies will have a real impact for public service workers

Commenting on the speech by Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner and the launch of the Stronger Together report at the Party’s annual conference today (Sunday), UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said:

“Labour is outlining genuine, meaningful policies that’ll have a real impact on those working in public services, and the people who rely on them.

“Angela Rayner’s pledge to launch a wave of insourcing will put the emphasis on delivering better services, not racking up profit on bargain-basement wages.

“The clear commitment to a national care service in the Stronger Together report is an important step in fixing social care for good. Vulnerable people will be better protected and those who provide the care will be properly valued.

“Labour’s building a solid base on which to deliver the transformative government the country needs.”
