I have some great news!
Following seven days of strike action and with ten further days planned at St Mungo's Broadway, the management have now agreed to roll-back on all the changes to pay, conditions, policies and union recognition that were the reason for this dispute.
This was never a dispute just about pay, but it was all about protecting quality services for some of the most vulnerable people in society. This has now been achieved and St Mungo’s Broadway will continue with a reputation for providing services that the workers are so proud of.
This fantastic result is a testament of what can be achieved when workers, service users and commissioners stand shoulder to shoulder and say enough is enough.
Thank you to everyone from across the UK for your support in sending emails, lobbying, joining protests and helping to achieve this victory.
