Support striking SERCO Unite members at Barts hospital

Serco outsourced workers at Barts begin two-week strike on Monday

 

Unite members in the NHS are fighting are fighting poverty pay and outsourcing.

 

Unite members who are cleaners, porters, security, catering and reception staff across St Barts, Royal London Hospital, and Whipps Cross will take strike action between Monday 31 January and Sunday 13 February.

 

Treated disgracefully

 

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: "The NHS workers taking strike action have their union’s unwavering support. They face the same risks as NHS-employed staff.  Why on earth are they being paid significantly worse while being treated disgracefully? It's time to end this injustice. It’s time to bring these workers, employed by Serco not the NHS, back into NHS employment.”

 

Worked tirelessly

 

Unite regional secretary Peter Kavanagh said: “Our members have worked tirelessly through the pandemic, they deserve better. Serco and Barts need to deliver a pay increase that addresses the poor pay and the inequality of treatment compared to directly employed NHS staff at other hospitals in London."

 

There are rallies on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Why not show your support and join the workers on picket lines or rallies when you can?  Contact branch officers to join a branch delegation or pop alang when you can.
