Unions take strike action in private social care


(April 2017) Unions from the three confederations came together on 27 March to organise strike action in support of their claims for around 20000 workers in private residential homes for the elderly. The four unions involved (Fp Cgil, Fisascat Cisl, Uiltucs Uil and Uil Fpl) have rejected  proposals from the Anaste employers' organisation that involve an increase in working time and a small pay increase after several years of pay increases. The unions have a raft of proposals to improve the pay and working conditions in the sector underlining the need for quality work to ensure quality services.
