A group of Future Directions workers attended the board meeting yesterday attended by Directors from the Trust and some of the same Directors who sit on the board of  Future Directions to handout literature giving facts why they are taking further strike action this weekend.

An opportunity was given before the start of the meeting to speak to the board,  one of the workers spoke stating “ we would like the board of Future Directions to come to the table to start discussions and resolve the situation and to say ‘no’  to the cuts that Future Directions are wanting to workers to take”

The company, established by Calderstones NHS to deliver services at a reduced cost,  took on the contract from Rochdale Council to provide supported living services in the Borough,  knowing that they would be unable to maintain terms and conditions of staff.  Cuts include losses to pay, removal of enhancements, reduced sick pay scheme and holiday entitlement.
