Southport and Ormskirk Hospital’s Unison Branch Office Christine Moore invited West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper to the hospital to co-sign their ‘Respect Your Youth’ charter, alongside the Chief Executive Silas Nicholls and the Young Members Officer Lauren Spike, among others.

The charter highlights the fact that young workers are disproportionately hit by the UK Governments austerity policies and says a combination of increased university tuition fees, unemployment, poorer job opportunities, lower pay and rapid house price inflation is deteriorating young people’s prospects.

In five key demands, UNISON Young Members in Ormskirk & Southport NHS Trust have called for the implementation of the real living wage irrespective of age, decent apprenticeships, fair employment, workplace equality and increased training opportunities.

MP Rosie was pleased that Silas and other senior staff at the hospital were as keen as Unison and to support younger workers.

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“The charter highlights the fact that young workers are disproportionately hit by the UK Governments austerity policies and says a combination of increased university tuition fees, unemployment, poorer job opportunities, lower pay and rapid house price inflation is deteriorating young people’s prospects.

“I’m delighted to work with the Chief Executive and staff at Southport and Ormskirk hospital together with Unison to support our younger workers.”
