This weekend will be dominated by the impact of the cuts on our sector. Many "care and support" workers have already suffered massive pay cuts (30%) and the slashing of other terms and conditions. While the government is directly responsible for this, there are rogue employers who are leading a race to the gutter and undercutting responsible employers. How to combat this effectively will be a key theme. Pointless and divisive sloganising will of course achieve nothing. But members are suffering and we need to defend them.
I am here as a Community NEC member. I'll try to post and tweet as we go on.
