Around 150 workers in the Unite union struck for three days at One Housing Group sites across London last week.

They provide support to people in supported housing, and face deep pay cuts that could push them into poverty.

The strike had been postponed to allow time for a meeting with management, but bosses are not talking.

Workers reported a higher turnout and more services affected than on the previous strike.

The mood was upbeat and determined.

Dozens of pickets rallied outside the One Housing Group head office in Camden on Friday lunchtime.
