Lookahead protest Thursday 12th June Hackney Town Hall‏


Look Ahead Attack their Workers Terms and Conditions Again!

Unite the union’s members in these vital mental health services who are already on low pay, received an average pay cut of 15% less than two years ago, and are now being asked to take a further 14% cut to their pay! Skilled posts are proposed to be deleted in a service which is already stretched to the limit. Their employer, Look Ahead Care and Support, is notorious for taking on services and slashing staff terms and conditions and quality for the clients they are contracted to support, whilst raking in public money for lavish executive pay rises.

The most recently available accounts of Look Ahead show 12% growth, reserves of £61 million and a £60 K pay rise for their highest paid executive. Hackney Council’s money must be spent on ensuring decent, safe and properly staffed residential care for vulnerable members of our community, not running down services to satisfy corporate greed. Come down to the rally and show your support! On Thursday, June 12th at 3pm, Hackney Town Hall
