UNISON Northern Ireland


UNISON is aware that many childcare facilities are now beginning to re-open as the Covid-19 lockdown begins to ease and more people return to their workplaces. The definition of a keyworker that can access childcare has been expanded.

UNISON is here to provide advice and representation for our members working in childcare settings who may be concerned about the health and safety of the children they care for, their colleagues and themselves.

We have rounded up the essential Health & Safety information our members working in childcare settings need to know. You can find all the information and guidance on our new Health and safety for childcare members page https://www.unison-ni.org.uk/health-safety-childcare-settings.

If you have any concerns about what is happening in your workplace you can contact your branch representatives. Branch details can be found here.
