Unions win full sick pay for outsourced workers at Homerton Hospital
Unions have won fully-funded sick pay for outsourced workers at Homerton Hospital.
GMB organiser Lola McEvoy said: “Our members at ISS Homerton have had huge support in their fight for equality with their NHS colleagues. The faced the same risk as their NHS colleagues and deserve parity them. The use of statutory sick pay in Hospitals like Homerton is not only cruel but dangerous and irresponsible.
“We applaud the courage our members have shown and our pleased the Trust have conceded on sick pay but the fight will continue until every key worker who faces the same risk be afforded the basic dignity of equality with NHS employed staff. This battle has been grueling but buoyed by this win, the fight for fairness continues.”
Yesterday, union-news.co.uk reported a pay rise for outsourced GMB members working at Kingston Hospital.
