Doncaster supported living services for vulnerable people has historically always been provided by the NHS. It was tendered out by Doncaster Council. The tender was bid for and won by Care UK.
Care UK, within months of the transfer want to decimate agenda for change terms and conditions cutting real time NHS wages by up to 50%
Our dispute with Care UK arises from the intention of the employer to slash terms and conditions of employment in order to make their profit.
As a branch we have attempted to persuade the employer away from this course of action by participating in every negotiating opportunity without success
The branch has extensively consulted with our members and after lengthy negotiations with Care UK management we have failed to reach an acceptable agreement. Following the ballot for strike action our members overwhelmingly voted yes for strike action.
Strike action has been announced to commence on 27th February to 6th March.
Doncaster, District & Bassetlaw Health Branch are requesting your support in our cause.
Any donations to help our members at this time would be greatly appreciated.
Please make donations to ‘Unison Doncaster, District & Bassetlaw Health Branch Hardship fund’, to Jenkinson House, White Rose Way, Doncaster. DN4 5GJ.
