Look Ahead - Another Great Protest!
On Thursday 19th June Unite members at Look Ahead organised a second, highly successful and well-supported protest outside Hackney Town Hall.
Staff at Look Ahead Housing in Hackney are facing their second substantial pay cut in two years. In 2012 Look Ahead made salary cuts of up to £6,000 per person for frontline care and support staff in their Hackney Supported Housing contracts. Staff have now been informed that Look Ahead plan to cut pay again by a further £3,000 per person. Yet Look Ahead's latest accounts show 12% growth last year, reserves of £61 million, and that they have awarded their Chief Executive a £60,000 pay rise.
The members are currently being balloted for indefinite strike action, with the vote being declared on Monday the 23rd June.
