Doncaster care workers strike on London HQ
Striking care workers involved in one of the longest running disputes in the history of the NHS staged a noisy protest today, claiming their pay and conditions have worsened.
Members of Unison working for Care UK in Doncaster have just launched a three-week walkout following months of action.
A group of workers travelled to central London to demonstrate outside the offices of parent firm Bridgepoint.
Nicola Naylor, who has worked as a nurse for 35 years, claimed qualified staff are leaving because of changes to their pay and conditions and they are being replaced by cheaper, untrained employees.
Unison said it is focusing its protest on the private equity company which owns Care UK.
