Urged On By Shadow Chancellor UK Foster Care Workers Vote To Unionise

“I know how tough the job can be physically, and how heart wrenching. Most of us are pretty shocked by what we’ve heard about your legal status, about the lack of recognition, the insecurity. The way we’ve tackled that in other work places – and I’ve been working with the IWGB on a number of these campaigns – is to join the union. That’s the first step. The lesson we’ve learned over the last couple of centuries is, individually we’re weak, together we’re strong. That way you can make better representations, you’re allowed a voice, you can negotiate better conditions. The second step is to make sure MPs are briefed by the union about what’s going on in the sector – you can’t let MPs make decisions in ignorance.”
