How We Can Help

The introduction of Universal Credit has the potential to significantly impact on the jobs of UNISON members working in Housing Benefit & Welfare rights roles . The Bargaining and Campaigns team are keen to hear from members working in these areas about what has , or seems likely to change, in their job as a result.

Please could you ask any relevant members to get in touch with me – S.low2@unison.co.uk with anything they want to say about .

1.What changes there have been since Universal Credit has been rolled out?
2. How much the shambles that the roll out has been has made or stopped things happening.
3. What changes do they see in their job happening longer term as a result of UC ?

Many thanks
