Unite the Union is running a campaign to stop the rollout of universal credit (UC) and would like to hear from you if you are a UC claimant.
Unite is conducting its own research into UC.
This includes surveying 100 claimants outside Jobcentres in each of 10 different areas of the UK.
In addition, there is an online survey that any UC claimant can take part in.
One of those involved in the campaign is the campaigner known as “I was a JSA claimant”.
He has been speaking to UC claimants, compiling survey results and tweeting some of the responses including:
"I was sanctioned for attending my sister's funeral even though I have prior notice to not been able to attend the meeting."
"My long term sanctions meant I got into six months rent arrears and I was evicted from my home of nine years, in December 2017"
"Asked for help with claim. Got nothing. I've been diagnosed with cancer in breast, informed jobcentre. Got sanctioned for missing 2 appointments. I was in fucking hospital!!!! Landlord wants to evict me as I cant give her enough money. Turned down for PIP"
