Members Meet Minister

On Tuesday 9th March government Housing Minister John Healey met with UNISON Labour Link members including a delegation from Notting Hill Housing Trust. Mr Healey fielded several questions around impending strike action at Notting Hill and was visibly concerned when told of the plight of members working at the trust. Mr Healey was alarmed to hear about the lack of consultation, removal of flexible working and paid carers leave. He emphasised the fundamental importance of employers treating their workers with respect and wished Notting Hill staff good luck in their efforts to be heard. The Notting Hill delegates were heartened to hear the words of support offered by the minister and are glad that he will be monitoring the situation very closely.
