Scotland’s Care Workers For Change

Article by UNISON Scotland 

Care is in crisis, thanks to a system that has been underfunded and ignored by governments for years. Care workers and the people that they look after are paying the price. 

That’s why we are campaigning for change – watch the campaign video here




If you work in social care or home care and are self isolating or shielding and are not receiving sick pay – we want to hear about it so that we can support you to #ClaimCovidCash. Despite funds being made available by Scottish Government, there are still many care workers not receiving full pay for sick leave when self isolating in relation to Covid-19.  To help tackle this care workers can register their details with UNISON online and join a campaign to ensure that all workers benefit from Scottish Government’s income guarantee. Click here or on the graphic for the online form.
