Strike action in Swindon

22nd December 2011

A strike ballot over alleged bullying is being held among workers at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon.

The union GMB said its members, who work as porters, cleaners and domestic staff, had complained about how they believe they are treated by employer Carillion. Figures show that the majority of GMB members, 147 out of 150, come from Goa in India and one of the issues being raised is Christmas leave. Carillion said it had not received the allegations to which the GMB referred.
