Security staff at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading are continuing strike action, the next action taking place over 20 days throughout January and February.
The Unite members are striking to demand a rate of £12 an hour, more than affordable for the employer Kingdom Services Group, which has a turnover of more than £100 million.
Disgracefully, the bosses are employing agency staff to attempt to undermine the strike. Socialist Party members attended the picket line on the first day of this new round of action on Monday 4 January and will continue to support the strike.
