NIPSA Public Sector Union have organised a rally in support of night shift health workers from Branch 732 based at Lakewood Regional Secure Centre, Newtownards Road, Bangor. These workers have been on all out strike since 18th June 2012. They have been forced to take this stand as their employer, the South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust has attempted to make massive budget cuts by trying to impose draconian new terms and conditions on these workers.
Instead of investing in this essential service by employing the staff needed for the job; the SEHSCT will make these workers work extra shifts over longer periods which will have a devastating impact on the quality of service. The workers rightly opposed this stealth cut in a service that protects vulnerable children; but management refused to enter into real discussions in how these cuts can be prevented leaving these courage workers with no other choice but to commence immediate all out strike action.
Attend the rally!
