More than three quarters of Usdaw’s members are juggling their jobs with looking after someone. Most are caring for children, older parents, grandchildren and sick or disabled family members.
Usdaw understands that this can be difficult even at the best of times. Since the start of the Coronavirus crisis parents and carers are under pressure like never before.
Usdaw is calling on the Government to lift the pressure by:
- Introducing a day one statutory right to ten days paid carers and parental leave.
- Improving protection for parents and carers from discrimination and redundancy by strengthening the law.
- Introducing a temporary legal right for parents and carers to access the furlough scheme.
- Improving the rate of and extending the reach of Carers Allowance.

Usdaw will use the results from this pledge to support and evidence our campaign. Information on how we process and store personal data can be found in our privacy notice
