More than 100 workers at Serco Sandwell will walk out tomorrow [October 6] after the firm failed to address a management culture of bullying and a slew of safety complaints. 

The firm also failed to show up for its own question-and-answer session with workers on October 5 – instead sending misleading written materials to union members. 

Workers will form a picket at the Shidas Lane site in Oldbury, B69 2BP. 

Justine Jones, GMB Organiser said: 

“GMB members voted to give Serco a month to change their ways. The job is still unsafe. The bullying continues. 

“Cowardly management at Serco Sandwell couldn’t even be bothered to face their own workers this morning to answer basic questions. 

“Our members are furious that Serco won’t let them serve the families of Sandwell they’ve spent their careers helping.”
