Care home workers announce strike in protest over pay

Care home staff have voted for industrial action and will strike from 29 June to 12 July to protest against pay proposals.

Care staff at St Monica’s Trust will protest at the picket line, with Unison backing, after announcing a series of strikes.

The first strike takes place on 29 June, with further action planned for 2, 5, 10 and 11 July in the Trust’s care homes across South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, and Bath and North East Somerset.
