Unite members plan series of pay protests across London

Hospital workers, cabin crew and Bank of England staff will mount demonstrations across the capital.

Hospital workers, cabin crew and Bank of England staff will stage a series of protests on Thursday as part of separate campaigns over pay.

Members of Unite who are on strike in a string of disputes, will mount demonstrations across central London.

Porters, security and domestic staff employed by Serco at Barts Health NHS Trust in London started a 14-day strike on July 25 and plan further industrial action in the coming weeks in protest at below inflation pay deals.

They will protest outside a presentation to investors of Serco’s financial results.

Later, BA mixed fleet cabin crew involved in a long-running dispute over pay, will demonstrate outside the Civil Aviation Authority.

The crew, who joined the airline since 2010, claim they are on “poverty” pay rates, which BA strongly denies.

A lunchtime rally will then be held in the City of London by Bank of England maintenance and security staff on the final day of a three-day walkout over the imposition of a below inflation pay rise.
