(en) UK, anarchist communist group ACG: Gas and care workers start the new year with strikes

Date Sat, 9 Jan 2021 13:08:04 +0200


British Gas/Centrica ---- On 7th January, around 7,000 gas and electrical engineers at British Gas/Centrica are due to come out on strike after the GMB union's ballot passed the government's anti-union threshold and received an 89% vote from members in favour of strike action. This is in response to massive pay cuts (originally 20% but ‘negotiated' down to 10%) and threats from management to fire and re-hire workers who refuse to knuckle under to these attacks. ---- More info on GMB website ---- UVW Care Workers and cleaners at SAGE ---- Care workers and cleaners at Service to the Aged (SAGE) nursing home in North London will walk out on 15th January against poverty wages and poor treatment. Currently on between £8.72 and £9.60 an hour, the workers are demanding £12 an hour and parity with NHS annual leave and sick pay entitlements.
