Unique care workers protesting against their sacking

The fight for reinstatement of 17 black women care workers in Huddersfield has entered its 18th week. Unique Care, a private care provider employed by the council, dismissed the women after they walked out in defence of a sacked colleague.

The success of their campaign now rests on the outcome of employment tribunals. The first one appeared to go well, and there are another four in the pipeline.
