Heartlands Restructure leaves 34 unemployed

Friday, April 15, 2016

GMB DEMAND COUNTRY COURT CARE SCRAP RESTRUCTURE WHICH WILL LEAVE 34 CARE HOME STAFF UNEMPLOYED

This is yet another disgraceful act which gives no consideration to those affected says GMB

GMB, the union for care workers, is calling on care provider Country Court Care to reconsider a restructure plan at Heartlands care home in Yardley, Birmingham that will leave 34 of its 80 staff unemployed.

The care home is also set to reduce the number of government funded residents, putting major stress on the most vulnerable people in the care sector. The business was transferred to Country Court Care in January earlier this year.

Justine Jones, GMB Organiser said, “The consultation period with GMB has started and we are doing our utmost to prevent these changes from taking place.

This is yet another disgraceful act which gives no consideration to those affected.

At this moment, we have not been informed which members of staff are going to be made redundant so most are very fearful and concerned about their future.”
