St Mungo's workers strike to maintain quality services

By Peter Kavanagh, Regional Secretary, Unite London & Eastern Region

Unite members prepare for a further 10 days of strike action in their fight to maintain quality services!

St Mungo's Broadway have made no effort to resolve this dispute and the workers are determined to preserve quality services for the homeless and resist the imposed detrimental changes to their terms and conditions.

The workers have only just finished a week long strike in an attempt to get management back into meaningful talks.

Please show your support for the St Mungo's Broadway workers by asking your MP to sign the Emergency Day Motion (EDM) 394 sponsored by Jeremy Corbyn MP.

This EDM asks for support for the workers and also calls on the executive and Board of St Mungo's Broadway to honour their recognition agreement with Unite and act to resolve this dispute immediately.

Aside from the blatant unfairness between huge pay rises that top bosses have recently recieved, including £30,000 pocketed by the new Chief Executive whilst new project workers seeing their pay slashed by £5,000, workers are deeply concerned at the long-term negative effects of the proposals that will result in cheap labour, downgraded roles and staff working under minimum standard policies and procedures.

Please support these workers and ask your MP to support this EDM.

In solidarity
Peter Kavanagh,
Regional Secretary, Unite
