at St George's Hospital, Tooting
Tuesday, 1st November
Pickets begin from 6am / main concentration from 8am
Effort Street, Tooting SW17 0QR
Patient Transport drivers working for G4S at St George's Hospital are paid less than other Patient Transport workers, and much less than other NHS workers at St George's. We are striking for equal conditions.
The privatisation of this service has seen our pay and conditions decline relative to all other workers at St George's Hospital. We are paid less than other Patient Transport workers at other local hospitals. G4S even pays its own workers at other hospitals better than it pays us - even at Outer London hospitals where the cost of living is lower.
G4S has suspended both of our GMB shop stewards, in an effort to stop us from demanding equal pay and conditions.
Please support us in our dispute - support our picket lines from 8am onwards at St George's Hospital on 1st November.
