Carers, domestic, and maintenance workers at Sage Nursing Home in North London are taking strike action.
“We built a high profile campaign, supported by care workers around the UK, that led to strike action at the start of the year in the harshest of conditions during a global pandemic lockdown.
Yet Sage Nursing trustees not only failed to keep their word but they also continue to preside over a workplace that is short-staffed, mismanaged and where bullying, favouritism, and a blame culture is rife. They have tried every trick in the book to break us but our resolve is stronger than ever.” Bile, Sage care worker.
These are some of the brave care home workers that are leading a fightback in North London that could change a broken care sector characterised by poverty pay, poor working conditions and poor job security.
