I was thrilled to present the Unison Northern Kenny Bell Memorial Award to Mary for her outstanding work in the field of lifelong learning.
It was also great to catch up with Unison members who have recently completed their IOSH H& S award, and work place reps training courses.

What makes our programme truly unique, is that it is not a one size fits all approach.

We work with workplaces to help them identify the areas for improvement, assess their requirements and continue to support as the organisation grows.

We’ve seen today exactly what Liz Truss thinks of public sector workers.
 
It’s clear her priority would be to slash their pay packets and send local economies backwards.
 
12 years of the Tories and this is what we’re left with.

Britain deserves better.

The PM calling the words of the leadership candidates as ‘satire’ showcases the farce of this Tory Government. We need a fresh start for our country can move forward! #PMQs

Be a mate. Be the change.

It is not always easy to tell that someone may be struggling, which is why its so important that we check in with friends and family.

We all can reach out and ask somebody how they are.

Today's annual report from @Channel4 show plans to privatise are a busted flush.

These results demonstrate that its current model works but goes above and beyond in delivering dynamic growth, revenue diversification and long-term sustainability!

Yesterday I called for the implementation of a fashion watchdog.
Introducing this will create a better foundation for good working conditions . I will be working on the development of this with several other MPs. Thank you to @traidcraftexch for their support in raising this.

Today, @LizTwistMP is standing up for a #FashionWatchdog in parliament after #PMQs – introducing a bill that would curb UK fashion brands’ abusive behaviour towards their suppliers that drives workers in the Global South into destitution.

Listening to @karinsmyth @evenor23 @LizTwistMP @cmcanea @maryanncv8 and @unisontheunion's Helen Couchman on care work.

High-skilled diverse women in social care are too often taken for granted, paid too little, & not given a chance to progress. Few greater feminist causes.

We support the UK Fashion Supply Chain Bill 🔗

This bill provides a Code of Practice for fashion retailers in their relationships with their suppliers, and an Adjudicator to enforce and encourage compliance.

It’s not just temperatures that are soaring ☀️- so is the cost of many essentials we all depend on. If you’re struggling financially, don’t forget water companies have schemes that can ease some of the pressure.

The Conservatives have overseen 12 years of economic stagnation, declining public services and empty promises.

We don’t need to change the Tory at the top – we need a proper change of government.

We need a fresh start for Britain.

Tory Cabinet Ministers have known all along who this Prime Minister is. They have been his cheerleaders throughout this sorry saga. In doing so, they have been complicit every step of the way, allowing Boris Johnson to disgrace his office and let down his country. #PMQs

This is proof that the Conservative party is at war with itself. We need strong leadership and it's time Boris and the Tories realise enough is enough, he's out of ideas, he's of touch and he's running out of time.

Great turn out for our @NEA_UKCharity and @FairByDesign social tariff event at parliament today. Excellent opening comments from @BenMLake @LizTwistMP @peter_aldous @alanwhiteheadmp & Baroness Pinnock, all talking about fairness and recognising the need of the #CostOfLivingCrisis

Kicking off our event on the social tariff and the cost-of-living crisis by hearing from @LizTwistMP @BenMLake @peter_aldous @KathPinnock and @alanwhiteheadmp! @NEA_UKCharity

A consistent supply of water is the minimum water consumers should be able to expect. However, repeat supply interruptions are impacting tens of thousands of customers every year. Don’t suffer in silence – contact our team https://orlo.uk/XfLCc
