Social care staff across Suffolk have played a vital role working on the frontlines during the coronavirus pandemic. But despite their essential jobs, most are not paid enough to make ends meet.
We support UNISON's call for Suffolk County Council leaders to guarantee all social care workers in Suffolk, including those in commissioned services:
- At least the Foundation Living Wage (currently £9.90 an hour),
- Covid-related sick pay (including while isolating),
- Occupational sick pay,
- Quality training and career pathways.
