Care UK workers at a supported living contract in Doncaster are fighting to protect their NHS terms and conditions. The employer is proposing to cut wages by up to 50%.
UNISON has been trying to negotiate with Care UK, which is refusing to change its position. A ballot of 150 UNISON members saw 90% voting for action and, as a result, members have already taken several periods of sustained strike action, as well as action short of a strike.
Members have taken over three weeks action and more is planned.
This group of low-paid workers has committed to taking action in protection of their NHS terms and conditions.
UNISON is asking branches to support this important strike action by giving donations to the hardship fund and to help these workers continue their fight to protect their pay and conditions.
Messages of support or donations should be sent to:
Yvonne Butcher, branch secretary
Doncaster District and Bassetlaw Health Branch, 20511
White Rose Way
Doncaster DN4 5GJ
