Birmingham Home Care Strike

£735 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 1 month
Created November 5, 2018
The Birmingham Home Carers have been in dispute with their employer, Birmingham Labour Council, for over 12 months and despite taking over 30 days of full strike action so far the Council is still insisting on making substantial cuts to the service.

This includes cutting the hours of the home carers which will lead to a pay cut of between £5,000 and £11,000 per year (for already low paid workers) and imposing unworkable shift patterns. Additionally, this will be reducing a much needed and valued service to the communities of Birmingham - a job which the Home Care workers take pride in.

The strikers are determined to win this dispute and have planned a further 15 days of strike action in November.

So far we have received magnificent support and solidarity from other trade unionists and the public with donations made to our Branch Hardship fund. However, as the amount of strike action has increased the demands on the Hardship Fund have also grown. UNISON Birmingham Branch are committed to our members and we do not want them to be forced back to work through financial hardship so we urgently need further donations.

Please help the Birmingham Home Carers as they fight to save their jobs and livelihood, as well as defending public services for Birmingham citizens!

If you can contribute towards their hardship fund it will help keep the battle going until the workers get victory! 

Any messages of support can be sent in email to or in writing to the UNISON branch office at UNISON, 19th Floor, McLaren Building, 46 The Priory Queensway., Birmingham B4 7LR. 

Also find updates and information on the dispute via our Facebook page 'Support the Birmingham Homecare Workers'!

In solidarity
