UNISON members “very underwhelmed” by £400 offer
The cuts were made by Your Choice Barnet, the private company that has slashed 30% of jobs since taking over the running of social care services for Barnet Council two years ago.
As a result of earlier strikes, bosses offered workers a one-off £400 payment, but this was rejected after members were “very underwhelmed”.
UNISON branch secretary John Burgess said: “Still Barnet Council is refusing to be a part of the negotiations on a business which it owns 100%. We view this as neglectful with respect to the workforce and the service users.”
