Each year we hold a campaign day called Supporting Parents and Carers Spotlight Day. Hundreds of reps and activists get involved by running campaigns at their workplaces.
This year's spotlight day, themed 'Not Enough Hours in the Day',
is to highlight the fact that short hours contracts put parents and carers under particular pressure. They can leave members without the hours they want and need to get by and make the already difficult task of juggling work with caring for someone that much harder.
If you would like to get involved on Spotlight Day, you can do as much or as little as you like. Usdaw will send you everything you need to help you have a successful campaign.
- Give out leaflets to members explaining how Usdaw can help them.
- Put a poster on your workplace noticeboard.
- Talk to members about the Union’s campaign.
- Ask members to take the survey.
Please do whatever you can to get involved and to help us help more members who are worried. Reps can order their campaign materials online
