Low-paid health workers shouldn’t have had to strike for one-off payment, says UNISON

Commenting on the government funding that will now allow thousands of health workers to receive the one-off payment given to NHS staff last year, UNISON head of health Helga Pile said:

Councils face cash crisis of more than £3bn, says UNISON    

Services at risk unless Westminster sorts council budget crisis

Councils across England, Wales and Scotland face a £3bn funding black hole next year

Ministers must find emergency funding to avert catastrophic cuts

Government must urgently tackle funding problems for struggling councils, says UNISON

Council workers should not pay the price for budget problems
