The email below has been received from Joe Lynch, Regional Organiser for UNISON Scotland. These proposed increases will adversely affect those who work in the care sector and we’d urge you to sign the petition and share it with your friends and family.
Please find below a link to the petition "Stop the huge rises in SSSC fees for Scottish care workers".
UNISON Scotland supports this petition to challenge these rises of 66% for low paid support workers and 166% for social workers, when wages rises are again below inflation, are unfair and a disincentive to people joining the care sector.
Real change happens when everyday people like you and I come together and stand up for what we believe in.
After you've signed the petition please also take a moment to share it with others. It's super easy – all you need to do is forward this email or share this link on Facebook or Twitter:
