Rochdale care workers set for five day strike

Issue No. 2368

Over 100 care workers at Future Directions in Rochdale are set to begin a five day strike on Thursday of this week.

The workers are members of the Unison union and have taken 14 days of strike action so far in a dispute over massive cuts to their pay, enhancements, holidays and sick pay.

They will be marching on Thursday 12 noon—meet at The Butts, Rochdale Town Centre, OL16 1HB.
