Unite continues to press the Scottish Government to do the right thing by the key workers who are
- keeping this country operating
- caring for our loved ones
- taking away our refuse
- supporting our kids at school.
Sign the STUC’s Time 2 Pay Workers petition to help the cause.
These heroes have always been essential to our lives but never more so than the last 2 months when it has been recognised just how important they are. They are on the frontline on the fight to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Unite, and our sister unions, have called on the Scottish Government to end the long-term trend of undervaluing the workers who look after us all as and when we need that care.
We have asked that all key workers are immediately given a £2 per hour uplift. Not just during this pandemic, but in recognition of their continued undervalued contribution they have been making for many, many years.
