Oppose privatisation

Back to all Motions

2012 Health Care Service Group Conference
16 December 2011

Despite successfully fighting privatisation in the majority of the health service, UNISON in Northern Ireland, like other regions, is battling the continued outsourcing of domiciliary care services to the private sector. There is also a continued push for shared services across the health service. Our members are deeply worried about compulsory relocation and redundancies.

Conference calls on the Health Service Group Executive to:

1)continue to prioritise opposition to privatisation strategies wherever they appear;

2)resist compulsory redundancies and relocation as a result of shared services and similar policies;

3)build alliances in common cause with communities resisting the cuts.
