Angry Home Carers

Angry Home Carers from North Lanarkshire have been in touch – to say that although there are two grades of home carer within the council – they all do exactly the same work and look after the same group of clients.

So, why – people want to know - are some carers on a lower grade than others?

I’m afraid we can’t answer that without some more details – but if people want to get in touch, we can arrange to get together - and get to the bottom of what’s going on.

Needless to say, if the trade unions had been doing their job properly – this sort of nonsense would never be allowed to happen.

And if somehow it had happened there would at least be an almighty row - and a public campaign to ensure fair treatment for all groups.

But that’s not what the trade unions are about these days – sadly.

So, if you want to do something about the situation – ring Action 4 Equality Scotland on 0845 300 3 800
