St Mungos Broadway workers vote for ten day strike
Unite members at St Mungos Broadway have voted for a further ten day strike from November 5th.
The General Secretary of Unite, Len McCluskey, addressed a packed meeting that took the decision. He emphasised the vital importance of the strike not only for both current and future workers and the clients at St Mungo’s Broadway, but for all involved in the supported housing and social care sector. He pledged the full support of Unite, “in every way possible” for what he called, “a pivotal dispute that is really about respect; respect for vulnerable people and the workers that care for them.”
Members heard that although management had conceded that they had made mistakes there was no movement from them and no offer had been made by the executive.
The previous seven day strike was highly succesful and Unite membership at St Mungos Broadway continues to rise.
