On Mon 22 Feb at 7pm, we are excited to welcome Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Jonathan Ashworth MP, to North West Durham via Zoom!
Members may recall that last year we wrote a joint letter with the support of a number of other CLPs to Jonathan, in which we outlined our belief that NHS and social care workers deserved more in the way of financial rewards for their service during the coronavirus pandemic.
Whilst many of us may have been heartened yesterday to see Labour’s deputy leader, Angela Rayner MP, call on the government to ensure care workers receive a wage of at least £10 per hour, there is clearly more to be done. Our NHS and care workers have given so much during the pandemic and it is only right that they are appropriately rewarded. Join us as we put our ideas to Jonathan and hear his thoughts on the demands we outlined in our letter last year.
