No to WWL Solutions


NHS workers at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Foundation Trust have won their dispute over plans to transfer them to a private limited company called WWL Solutions. 

The staff work in roles including cleaning, portering and catering.

Staff campaigned to keep the NHS team together, to protect terms and conditions, and to protect the terms and conditions of future generations of hospital staff.

The campaign against the outsourcing plan received tremendous support from the public, from local Labour MPs, and from the wider labour movement.

Thanks to everybody for the support.
