Workers and unions at Homerton hospital, east London are celebrating a major victory: winning NHS sick pay for all staff working for private contractor ISS.

More than half of cleaning, catering, portering and security staff have had to rely on statutory sick pay. That's just over 95 a week.

A long-running campaign has won several victories, including pay increases to the London Living Wage and above. But proper sick pay for all staff is the biggest yet.

Naomi Byron, co-secretary of the Homerton branch of public service union Unison, said: "This is a huge relief for staff to win occupational sick pay, and it's thanks to all the staff who stood together and fought so hard for our rights that we have won this major victory."

The campaign will continue for all staff employed by ISS to receive full NHS pay and conditions, and to be brought back in-house.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
