The Council is more or less saying cut your hours or face redundancy to the home care workers in a developing course of action.

Homecarers are due to go on strike again soon over changes to working rotas which would see many suffer a negative impact on themsleves and on those they care for.

However the Council managers are now saying many could be made redundant if they don't agree to all jobs being part time which will lead to a loss of earnings for many of the 280 workers.

The Birmingham Post reports:

Staff will either work 14, 21 or 22.5 hours, meaning full timers will given a choice of taking reduced hours, taking redundancy or moving to another job within the city council.

A union source said: "Having only just seen the detail we will consider our response in full. But from what we have seen our members are going to be furious about this."


 There's a planned demonstration against the cuts on Saturday August 11th. for details go to our Facebook events page
