We are a new UVW trade union group growing a community of childcare professionals who have each other’s backs. We are building resilience and worker power in an underfunded and underappreciated industry and are determined to push back against employers who make nursery workers bear the brunt of this.
We know that we are so much stronger together than apart. By acting together we call out bad practice and push for positive change so our members have a better standard of living and safer workplaces. We never hesitate and are never afraid to use all tools at our disposal to achieve this, equality, respect and dignity in the workplace is non-negotiable.
Our members are nursery practitioners of all levels, including apprentices, nursery nurses, nursery assistants, and those in vital support roles such as cleaning, catering and administration.
Our aims are simple:
1. Full pay sick pay from day one
2. The Real Living Wage for all!
3. Manageable workloads and staff/child ratios
4. Trade union recognition and respect
5.Increased government funding for the sector
