Striking Home Care workers declared Council leader Ian Ward a “Scrooge” for his attitude to Home Care workers who are continuing to try to get the message over that they are being treated badly by a Council who wants to cut their pay and hours. They marched to the Council House today (11/12/18) to deliver their message. Meanwhile the Council continues to ignore their reasonable demands and they have decided in a recent ballot with a turn out of more than 70% to continue their strike. Plans are bring made to highlight their concerns in a more political way.
