It is now six months since 16 black women were sacked by their employer Unique Care for walking out over issues of changed contracts, bullying and the sacking of a colleague.

The women continue their struggle for justice and reinstatement. Last week they spoke at the council meeting in Kirklees to ask how such a company could be given a contract worth £400,000 by the council.

Not surprisingly they got no answers.
