Careworkers in North London have threatened strikes in struggle to win £12 an hour and NHS terms and conditions.
They are organising in the United Voices of the World union who say:
“Throughout this deadly pandemic they have risked their lives to care for the elderly and some of the most vulnerable, and all on poverty wages and Dickensian terms and conditions of employment. And the only “reward” they’ve been given is a free pizza for lunch one day!
This is UVW’s first ever care worker dispute, and you can be sure that we will fight to win to the bitter end!
So, if you want to support these heroes in their battle for equality, dignity, and respect in the workplace, please drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Quality care deserves quality pay!
