Care UK managers have pledged that strike action planned by staff members won’t spoil Easter fun for people supported by the service

Unison has informed Care UK that it is planning a four day strike over the Easter bank holiday.

Managers and colleagues from other parts of the service will join support workers who aren’t part of the union over the four day holiday.

A range of special seasonal events and activities are also scheduled to go ahead.

Care workers are striking in a dispute over changes they claim could see some workers lose up to 50 per cent of their take-home pay.

The Unison members employed by Care UK said their income would drop due to changes to rates for unsocial hours.

Care UK rejected the claim and said the proposed changes would protect jobs.

It cares for 140 people with learning disabilities in about 40 properties in Doncaster.
