The campaign against Bristol City Council’s plan to privatise care homes and other social care services and cut funding to voluntary sector organisations is now supported by Britain’s three biggest unions, Unite, Unison & GMB.
More details about the campaign here…
UNITE have published three leaflets which can be downloaded from the BADACA website Growing The Economy, Fair Wages & Tax Justice For All,Trade Union & Employment Rights. Also a statement ‘Cuts Are Not the Answer‘ from their National Executive.
The care homes under threat include Bowmead, Brentry, Broomhill, Hayleigh, Maesknoll and St Peter’s, plus Coombe, Rockwell, Wellhay and Greville. Also under threat are day-care services including Lanercost, Lawrence Link, St George, Shire Link, Dover Court, North Bristol Drop In, South Bristol Drop In and New Horizons, as well as other day care services for people with dementia. And of course all the voluntary sector organisations whose funding is threatened – full list of threatened organisations here.
