Scots reject social worker union idea

    Plans for the Scottish branch of the British Association of Social
    Workers to sever links with public sector union Unison and set up
    its own union for social workers have fallen at the first
    hurdle.

    The proposal, defeated at BASW’s annual general meeting at
    Community Care LIVE, arose from frustration with pay and
    conditions.

    Unison senior national officer Owen Davies welcomed the news and
    added that Unison would continue to work with BASW on issues of
    shared interest.
