United Kingdom -Care workers in Glasgow set for strike -January 10, 2014

Care workers in Glasgow City Council's residential homes are going on strike for two days to resist new job roles, longer shift patterns and pay cuts of up to 7%. The lowest-paid workers are being asked to take on new tasks like dispensing medicines - and at the same time they are being forced to work longer shifts and to accept massive wage losses of up to £1,495 per year for 182 staff who are already feeling the impact of rising living costs.
