Message to Islington UNISON from Heather Wakefield, UNISON National Secretary for Local Government

"Dear Jane and Mike

The Islington Labour Staff Manifesto is a fantastic initiative, brought
about by collaboration between UNISON, GMB, Unite and a forward-looking
Labour council.  It demonstrates what can be achieved by Labour councils who
put their employees and good industrial relations at the heart of their
policy making and employment practices. It should inspire others to work
closely with UNISON and the other unions to end the all-too-common bargain
basement approach to pay and conditions and recognise that good employment
practice benefits service users and local economies as well as employees
themselves. Together with UNISON's Ethical Care Charter, it could change the
face of local government employment. At a time when pay is once again a
'hot' issue, it deserves widespread promotion. Well done."
