Outsourced health workers in east London are ramping up their fight against multinational Serco.

The Unite union members were set to escalate their action with a five-day walk out on Friday—the first of a series of five-day strikes against poverty pay.

The largely migrant, low paid workers are cleaners, domestics, porters and security staff across four sites at Barts Health NHS Trust.

This latest round comes after three successful walkouts over the last two months—and bosses are feeling the pressure.

“The scabs they’re bringing in don’t know how to do the work.”
