The Queen’s Speech has ignored the nation’s concerns, says UNISON


Commenting on today’s Queen’s Speech, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “Ministers are living in a parallel universe. Years of harsh spending cuts have caused huge damage to public services across the country. 

“People have had enough of austerity, and want proper investment in schools, hospitals, police forces and local services. Yet there was none of this in the Queen’s Speech.

“Nor was there anything about pay. Nurses, teaching assistants, council workers, care staff and other public sector employees should be rewarded for their hard work with a long overdue wage rise. The pay cap has left them extremely hard up and must go.”

Future of the Carillion contract decided

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) and Carillion have mutually agreed to a managed exit from the core aspects of the Estates and Facilities contract.

The Trust has begun a process to transfer core Estates and Facilities services back under NUH’s management in a managed way by 1 April.

We recognise the continued hard work of Carillion staff as NUH and Carillion have discussed what the future holds. Over the coming weeks, a process will commence that will see Carillion staff transfer back to NUH by April.

Peter Homa, NUH Chief Executive, said: “The Trust will require a period of time to assess and action what is required to take forward these essential services and deliver the highest level of service to our patients and front line staff.”
