Coventry care home workers occupy for wages

Issue No. 2186

Workers at a Coventry private care home, which is closing down, are sitting-in demanding that they are paid the wages owed to them. Five workers at Links Home in Radford have been at the site since 9.30am

Maj, one of the workers, told Socialist Worker, “Our money should have been in our accounts today, but there is no sign of it. The manager says it will be paid but we want to see it.

“He has also said that he is not going to pay us the annual leave money owed to us. We are going to be out of our jobs and out of pocket. The residents are being moved out of the home. None of this should be happening. I’m refusing to move until I get paid.”
