Key workers are key – local authority newsletter

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.
