From The Socialist newspaper, 9 April 2014

Homes and Communities Agency strike

Staff in the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) in London and Manchester began a three-day strike on Tuesday 24 March, and may call further action.

Workers in the Unite union are angry at a pay settlement that benefits higher grades, and at discrepancies in pay between workers on different contracts.

Kerry Feetham, a Unite rep for home workers, Leeds and Manchester said: "Members have had enough. They are angry at the disparity in pay, but it is not just about pay, it is also about stress with increased workloads, constant restructuring which leads to more middle management, and not being appreciated as key staff members who work in social housing regulation.

"We hope this action will bring the HCA back to start a full negotiation process with us."
