Care Workers Dispute BTUC Press Release

The Birmingham TUC (BTUC) along with Birmingham Against The Cuts (BATC) say enough is enough of the continuing disgraceful treatment meted out to the City’s care-workers of whom 95% are women on low pay.

 Their dispute has gone on for some 15 months unresolved along with 60 days of strike action, whilst the Labour controlled council resolved the Bin workers dispute but has allowed the debacle of care-workers who also suffer changes in their work contracts with cuts in pay to continue.

These care-workers need the fullest public and trade union support to assist in their just claim of returning to their original terms and conditions in order to provide a service to this city’s needy who will be unable to afford private assistance.

The BTUC and BATC call upon Birmingham City Council to resolve this dispute as quickly as possible.
