WORKERS at health profiteer Care UK in Doncaster voted yesterday to stage a one-day strike in order to keep their dispute “live.”
Anti-strike laws dictate that when workers vote for strike action the vote falls out of date if action does not take place within a fixed period.
The Care UK workers recently took three weeks of strike action, meaning they have now been out for over 90 days — the longest strike action in the history of the healthcare industry.
Care UK Unison shop steward Roger Hutt said: “We are as determined as ever to continue with this action in defence of the National Health Service and against Care UK’s profit-driven attack on our wages and conditions.”
Staff had been employed by the NHS on contract to Doncaster Council to provide support for people with learning difficulties to help them maintain their independence, but were later transferred to Care UK.
