Stop Leicestershire County Care Ltd Putting Profit Before People

Plans by a major Leicestershire care home employer to make drastic cuts to pay, sick leave and holidays for more than 100 staff are beyond belief.

The move by Leicestershire County Care, whose parent company Johnson Care Group made accumulated profits of £4.8m last year, is an ‘insult’ to already low-paid workers who are putting their lives on the line during the coronavirus pandemic.

Our advice to members is simple; do not sign up to inferior terms & conditions.
