  2. A minimum of £15 an hour for all social care workers.
  3. A minimum floor of terms and conditions for all social care workers which includes two 30 mins paid rest breaks, access to enhanced sick pay and consistent provision of pensions.
  4. The establishment of collective bargaining in all areas of social care services including the third sector and private sector.
  5. The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) registration fee to be fully funded by the Scottish Government.

Another Edinburgh is Possible

Another Edinburgh is Possible is a recently formed independent alliance of community groups and trade unionists working to defend and extend public services in the city. 

Please consider completing this short survey.  Another Edinburgh is Possible wants to know your views about current council services and your ideas for the services we need. 

Complete the survey

The survey is completely anonymous, it will be impossible to link responses to any individual, and the data collected will be used to help us collate the views of people right across the city and understand how factors like age and gender influence experience.

Once you’ve submitted the form please share the link with friends, family, neighbours and workmates (email, Facebook, WhatsApp etc).
