Petition – Alternative Futures Group


Alternative Futures Group (AFG) is a major North West provider of care services for adults with learning disabilities and employs around 700 UNISON members.

AFG is planning to remove top-up payments for staff working sleep-in shifts from January 2019.  This will amount to a loss of up to £90 per week for AFG’s dedicated care workers and take those workers to below National Minimum Wage rates for sleep-ins.  

UNISON NW is currently in dispute with the employer and will shortly launch a consultative ballot for industrial action.

We have also launched a petition (click on link below) and ask that you please sign and circulate as widely as possible.
