Pay Up Website Launched

Unite has launched an excellent informative and interactive new website as part of its Fair Pay campaign which includes a wealth of resources for representatives, members and activists across our sector.


The website includes the following features:


- Pay Up Report with facts and figures to help galvanise members and help reps negotiate over pay.


- Fair Pay Fortnight with activities including a petition calling for Cameron, Clegg and Miliband to Pay Up!


There are also sections for members in:


Through these sections you can share your stories, view pay claim details, write to your local MP, participate in email and Twitter campaigns, and download resources such as posters, collective bargaining material, and information on the Living Wage, 


The site aims to get the message out that public services underpin a good economy and a good society. Money spent on public services is not money wasted. The government always makes a return on its investment. The Pay Up! campaign demands investment not cuts, the living wage as a minimum to lift one million public sector workers out of poverty, pay rises for all to bring in more revenue for the Treasury and a much needed lift to our local economies, and collective bargaining for an end to the government's five year diktats on pay.




Before Posting

We welcome debate and discussion on our website, but we also want an open, respectful, inclusive space in which forms of abuse or personal attack will not be tolerated. Comments will be moderated and will be removed if they are found to be unduly offensive. You should also be very careful in posting information about your employer. Employers do visit the website and if you think a comment could get you into trouble for releasing confidential or sensitive information, or for bringing the employer into disrepute, please do not post it. It remains your individual responsibility to ensure that what you post is appropriate. Please therefore just give a moment's thought to what you are saying. The types of comments that are likely to be moderated are:

  • Personal abuse or attacks on an individual.
  • Information which breaches another person's right to confidentiality.
  • The use of offensive language, including swear words, or language which is racist, sexist, or otherwise breaches equalities standards.
  • Anything that might place the Branch or the wider union in legal jeopardy.
  • Adverts or information which is posted for commercial gain.
