Members of the Unite union employed by private contractor Serco and working at Barts Health have voted in favour of industrial action.
This week, we are expecting there to be a seven day strike by our Serco employees, who provide soft facilities services to Barts Health NHS Trust, over a dispute with their employer. This will take place from Tuesday 11 July at 6am until Tuesday 18 July at 5:59am.
We have been working closely with both sides to find a resolution to this dispute, urging them to seek a solution through the mediation service ACAS.
Contingency plans are in place to minimise any disruption and to keep our patients safe. All patient care at each of our hospitals will continue and we advise patients to attend their hospital appointments as normal.
