Stars in Our Schools

About Stars in Our Schools

Stars in Our Schools is a celebration of school support staff. UNISON has organised the day to celebrate the wonderful work they do every day and to make sure the world knows just how vital they are to children’s education.

On Friday 24 November 2017 schools across the UK held ceremonies, put on special assemblies and even dressed up as super heroes to celebrate.

The Living Wage

UNISON is campaigning for a living wage

UNISON is campaigning both locally and nationally for a living wage.

We are campaigning across the country with low-paid workers for individual employers to pay the living wage and campaigning nationally for a new, higher statutory minimum which reflects the living wage.

Over a parliament, steep increases to the minimum wage should be implemented to bring it into line with the UK living wage.

One team for patient care

When people think of the NHS, they probably think of doctors, nurses and paramedics. But what about the rest of the NHS workforce who work behind the scenes and carry out hundreds of different roles every day to make sure that patients and their families get the best treatment possible? We want to promote the message that all NHS staff, whatever their job, play an important role in delivering quality patient care in their own different ways.
