Social workers lobby Hull City Council

Mick Whale, president, Hull trade union council

About 150 social workers lobbied Hull City Council on 21 November. They were campaigning for a more reasonable workload and an end to bullying by management.

While the numbers of looked after children in Hull has grown to a staggering 863, the council's children's services have been heavily criticised by Ofsted - the government's inspectors.

Nine years of austerity has wreaked havoc on the poorest and most vulnerable in Hull, while Tory austerity cuts of more than 120 million since 2010 has cut support services to the bone.

However, while blaming the Tories for austerity, the Labour council has not fought the cuts and the crisis in children's social care is the result.

The Labour council should be looking to link up with the social workers and other council workers who have been under the cosh, to campaign for more resources to lift the pressure on council workers rather than wringing their hands and acting as a conduit for Tory cuts.
