HCA Strike Fund Appeal
As reported previously, Unite members at the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) have taken 3 days of strike action (25-27 March) over the divisive and unfair way that the Agency has chosen to allocate pay, and because the Agency has consistently failed to negotiate in any meaningful way. See previous article for details.
HCA management seemed to believe right up until the last moment that our members would not take this sustained action and that the impact would be minimal. Instead, it was timed to coincide with the financial year end peak of activity and was solidly supported, One reason for was this was that members were promised they would be able to claim both the £30 per day strike pay and a top-up from the branch. Sadly, too many low paid members cannot afford the loss of three days' pay.
We are now appealing to our members, sister branches, other unions, and trade union bodies to donate to our strike fund and help cover the cost of this strike and possible further industrial action at the Agency.
