Manager at Swindon resigns prior to strike

22nd February 2012

An unnamed manager at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon has resigned ahead of a 24-hour strike by support workers.

Porters, cleaners and domestic staff walked out over allegations of managerial bullying and harassment by contractor Carillion and plan further action. Carillion confirmed the resignation but said it was disappointed that strike action was going ahead despite talks being held with the GMB union, which has said it is disturbed that Carillion did not accepting there was a "culture of bullying and harassment at the hospital".
