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.
