Doncaster Care UK workers stage third strike

Care workers in Doncaster have started a third period of strike action in a dispute over changes they claim could see some workers lose up to 50% of their take-home pay.

About 150 workers began their action on Sunday morning and will not return to work until Tuesday morning.

The Unison members employed by Care UK said their income would drop due to changes to rates for unsocial hours.

Care UK rejected the claim and said the proposed changes would protect jobs.

It cares for 140 people with learning disabilities in about 40 properties in Doncaster.

Union members previously walked out for seven days at the end of February.

Unison said the fresh action followed the breakdown of talks at the conciliation service Acas.

Care UK said it remained committed to finding agreement with Unison.
