#claimcovidcashIf you work in social care or home care and are self isolating or shielding and are not receiving sick pay – we want to hear about it so that we can support you to #ClaimCovidCash. Despite funds being made available by Scottish Government, there are still many care workers not receiving full pay for sick leave when self isolating in relation to Covid-19.  To help tackle this care workers can register their details with UNISON online and join a campaign to ensure that all workers benefit from Scottish Government’s income guarantee.
