Information on strike action by Carillion support workers

Patient services not affected by Carillion strike

As part of a dispute between the GMB Trade Union and Carillion, a number of Carillion support staff (cleaners and hostesses) at GWH will be taking part in strike action from Monday 27th February to Wednesday 29th February (inclusive).

Carillion is a contractor to the Trust therefore we do not have responsibility for the management of their staff or for any employment disputes of this nature.  However, they are a key supplier to the Trust providing a range of important services so we are keen to ensure that our patients are unaffected by any strike action.  

Carillion will have additional qualified staff on site providing support to the hospital throughout this period and the Trust has robust contingency plans in place to ensure there is minimal disruption to patient services.  Visitors to the hospital should notice no impact on services during the course of the strike with appointments and all other services running as normal.
