Care workers have announced two strike dates over a pay cut.

The UNISON members at Your Choice Barnet, in High Road, Whetstone have announced that they will strike on September 8 and 9, due to a 9.5 per cent pay cut.

UNISON Branch Secretary John Burgess said: “Our members care for the service users and have shown remarkable professionalism over the last eighteen months once details of the serious financial issues emerged.

“Almost 30% of the workforce has been made redundant which is placing a strain on the remaining staff.

“But things can’t go on like this, if the Commissioning Council want YCB to survive they need to enter in to talks on the UNISON 8 point Charter immediately. We have requested a meeting but to date had no response.”

The members will also be planning four other days of strike action.
