We wanted to write out to you to let you know that the (mostly) women in Homecare in Dundee City Council have made a difference.
For two years, the predominantly female workforce fought hard with grit and determination against the threat of being forced to work split shifts, accept a pay cut of up to £4500, all against the backdrop of threats of privatisation if they did not accept worse working conditions.
The workers in Home care will now no longer be forced into worse working conditions.
The Home Care workers have shown that by standing together, and by getting involved, you can win.
The fight is now on for everyone’s terms and conditions that Dundee City Council unilaterally imposed in February without consultation.
