STRIKE AT SAGE – Quality CARE DESERVES quality pay

UVW members, care, domestic and maintenance workers at Sage Nursing home in North London declared a huge victory after a protracted dispute over poverty pay and decent working conditions. Winning the London Living Wage, resulting in a minimum pay rise of 11% for some workers and all other staff a rise of 5%.

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.
