National Social Work Agency

Links to two new bargaining briefings

A National Social Work Agency

Occupational Therapists and a National Social Work Agency

Key things to know:

The government intends to create a National Social Work Agency as part of the proposed National Care Service.

The NSWA would have a Workforce remit including pay and conditions and the current intention is to remove the majority of social work staff from SJC collective bargaining.

The Social Work Issues Group has successfully pressed for UNISON to have representation on the Scottish Government groups developing the Agency.

These briefings give an overview and identify the key issues.

They also identify areas where we need to develop a policy.

Could members please contact their workplace reps or the branch office directly with any questions/feedback.
