Nearly 600 health workers employed at Bart’s health trust, including Royal London, Whipps Cross and St. Barts hospitals, have voted 97% in favour of strike action for fair pay, and against increasing workloads and bullying. Strikes will be set for January 2022.
Serco Group PLC had a turnover of £3.9 billion last year but the multinational is offering staff just a 1% pay ‘hike’. The staff, which include cleaners and porters, are paid up to 15% less than directly employed NHS staff.
