GMB for Care Workers
GMB believe that our care workers deserve to be properly paid for the valuable service they provide. We will continue to campaign and put pressure on employers, Local Authorities and the Government to recognise and value the work that care workers do.
The business model that many providers adopt rely on a low-wage workforce. Is it acceptable for people who care for some of the most vulnerable in society to be paid so poorly? The work that care workers do is important and should be acknowledged.
Stress in the Care Sector
GMB are conducting a survey to find out how stressed our care workers are in their workplace.
GMB will use the overall results to call on government, local authorities and care providers to invest properly in the care sector to ensure that care workers are not overworked and are able to provide the best possible care.
