This page is being provided for the benefit of 1st Call Homecare Ltd Workers, many of whom are UNISON members, to ensure accurate information on what is happening at the company which has failed to pay them on time on more than one occasion recently
We were contacted last week by worried members in two 1st Call Homecare workplaces, St Pauls and Runnymede, who had not received their wages as expected on Thursday 10th May.
Members have confirmed that their wages were eventually paid on Monday 14th May at 12:07pm.
We know that this is a distressing time for staff and we would like to offer our support in permanently resolving this situation.
To this end, we continue to attempt to make contact with your employer and invite them to engage with staff and UNISON.
Plymouth in UNISON have set up some drop-in surgeries from 12-3 pm on Wednesday 16th May and Thursday 17th May from 9am-7pm with Emily Gallagher, Area Organiser, at the Branch office at City Business Park in Stoke, for any staff to come and talk to us about issues they are experiencing with 1st Call Homecare. Please bring any relevant paperwork such as payslips, contracts, etc.
This matter is being given our urgent attention and our plan for the coming days is to:
· Collate information from affected staff,
· Organise our members, recruiting points of contact and assisting staff to know their rights and represent themselves where necessary
· Continue to attempt to engage with your employer to resolve the issues that are being brought to us
· Liaise with relevant authorities and regulatory bodies to see what additional support is available
We will keep you updated via this page and any contact details that have been provided to us.
