GMB is staging a protest in anger at Stoke Council plans to slash dedicated carer workers’ pay by 20%.

The authority has announced it intends to cut extra payments for StokeCare staff working weekends and unsociable hours.

Overall the pay cuts will affect 1,000 staff.

GMB, along with sister unions Unison and Unite, will stage a demonstration as follows:

Wednesday February 19, 4.30pm

Dave Warwick, GMB Organiser, said:

"Stoke council has finally run out of excuses -  the Government has a huge majority, all the Stoke MPs are Tory and the Council is run by Tories.

“They should go to central Government and demand the money Stoke City Council needs and take its boot off the neck of its lowest paid workers.”
