Sanctuary Housing Group, are planning to cut salaries of workers by up to one third despite hundreds of workers challenging the cuts in the consultation process. The change is about to be imposed from the 1st of November 2016, with limited pay protection of 6 months. We would like your support to fight this.
BUT CUTS ARE NECESSARY AREN’T THEY?
Sanctuary is one of the biggest Housing Associations in the country with c11,000 workers. It has made a record breaking surplus of £52 million last year. Instead of harmonising salaries downwards, it should be giving its hardworking staff a pay rise. Saying that they now have to pay some workers the national minimum/Living wage is not an excuse, is a shocking insult.
If they can do it to one group of workers, they will do it to any group of workers. Unite has been meeting Sanctuary workers across the country. They have reported a bullying management culture, impossible workloads, long working hours, stressful working conditions, low pay and inadequate staffing.
But Unite has won victories with our Sanctuary members, pushing back against pay cuts, and insisting on their employment rights. We can beat this with your support and Sanctuary workers joining and getting active in Unite. Be part of the fight for:
• Better pay
• Job security
• Respect at work
• Proper staffing
• A safe workplace
