Dying to Work Charter

Unimaginable, earth-shattering… what must it feel like to get a terminal diagnosis, so the last thing folk need to be dealing with is a knee jerk reaction from employers to move towards dismissal, Tony Slaven highlighting the TUC Dying To Work Charter at UNISON Scottish Council.

South Lanakshire Council and the South Lanarkshire Joint trade Unions signed up to this Charter in November last year

Tony encouraged other branches to promote this Charter and campaign for terminal illness in itself to be a protected characteristic and thus support folk to continue in work despite their terminal diagnosis if that is what they choose to do.
