Why are we striking?
After six months of negotiations
- Haven't made a formal offer
- Want to introduce 7-day services using existing staff/budget
- Want to grandparent weekend rates and reduce T2 to T1.5 for new staff
Read why we should protect weekend rates, including why grand-parenting won’t protect your income.
Members voted to take strike action
It was clear we have to start low-level strike action to get:
- A formal offer
- A fair transition to 7-day services with sufficient staffing
- Protect conditions for everyone
We didn't make this decision lightly.
