Health workers

Issue No. 1842

HEALTH WORKERS in the Unison union employed by private contractors across east London are stepping up their fight for decent pay and conditions. Domestic workers, caterers and porters at Homerton and Whipps Cross hospitals have rejected an offer from ISS Mediclean.

They are set to begin a ballot for strike action on Monday 31 March. Unison, supported by local community organisations, is organising a major event to build solidarity with the low paid workers' action.
