Our members in care, the NHS and other vital public services have risen to the challenge of dealing with this pandemic.
But many feel they are forced to put themselves in harm’s way every time they go to work because this government is not keeping its promises on personal protective equipment (PPE).
Staff are not the only ones at risk – their families and the people they care for are for are also in danger.
Promises won’t cut it any more: we need action.
UNISON Middlesbrough LG Branch has supplied a small quantity of PPE for Care workers across the Area recently.
We wanted to say Thank You for the support you are giving to our relatives during these unprecedented times.
