Homecarers at Labour conference

A group of Home Carers went to the Labour Party conference to highlight their concerns. A number of MPs and members showed support for the Home Carers and  some even took to socal media. David Prentis , Unison general secretary also showed his support ( see picture above)

"Very glad I could join the Home Care Workers from Birmingham, striking to defend their jobs and their pay. Taking action against triple shifts that would make their work days long and family life almost impossible. Unison Birmingham Branch UNISON #LabConf18 "

 

The Council want to make cuts to the service and change working conditions for Home carers, which may see workers losing £11,000 a year,  all this whilst they pay external consultants £12 million to look at the merger of Birmingham and Solihull services in this area.

A strike took place on  Saturday 15th September 12  and a march  In the city centre.

The Council are communicating with the Unions , but the matter is still unresolved.

Home Care workers turned out to picket work places last week and to explain their cause to fellow Council workers.

The Home Care workers have ramped up their efforts to be seen and to get the message over that they feel unfairly treated by the Council's proposals to cut hours and inevitably wages.

Pickets turned out at Lifford House and a number of other Council workplaces. At Lifford there was a PCS steward who turned up to show solidarity with the strikers.
