For several years UNISON has been highlighting the low pay conditions endured by many workers in the private care sector. We have given evidence to a multitude of reviews. As a result, the exploitation of this workforce has been recognized but no action has been taken to remedy it.

UNISON has been lobbying to have NISCC fees waived completely for the period of the pandemic.

We have successfully managed to have fees deferred until October 1st.
