Friday 5 July 2019 – UNISON Centre, London
UNISON is holding a social care seminar for members from across the UK on Friday 5 July 2019 at the UNISON Centre in London. UNISON members in Coventry who deliver frontline services across the whole range of adult social care settings are invited to attend.
The seminar is open to all social care UNISON members, whether you work for the council, not for profit community or voluntary organisation, a for profit company or delivering social care in a healthcare setting.
Members will have the opportunity to hear about UNISON’s future plans for social care, to learn how best to campaign and organise in the sector and to allow people to help shape the union’s work in the area. There will be a mix of excellent speakers, including talks from inspiring care workers who have been involved in industrial disputes and an update on UNISON’s ongoing legal action over the sleep-in issue.
Workshop topics currently include:
- Dealing with violence at work
- How to try and achieving safe staffing levels in care homes
- Campaigning and organising in the care sector across the UK
- Pay and tax issues facing care workers
- Establishing career progression for care workers
Places are limited to 90 members. We are keen for a mix of homecare, residential home, nursing home, supported living workers and all other frontline care workers to come along and to ensure that there is fair representation of members at the event. We also want to try and make sure that members who work for private and voluntary sector employers attend.
The cost of the seminar will be met by Coventry City UNISON. This will cover travel, refreshments, lunch and administrative costs for the event.
The seminar will run from approximately 10:15 until 15:30. A full and detailed programme of events will be available nearer the time.
If anyone wants to attend this please contact George Sands, Coventry City UNISON Branch Office – phone 02476 521128 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone interested should let us know before Wednesday next week (29thMay) so we have time to make your booking before the deadline.
