Non-urgent patient transport drivers from Eastbourne will be protesting in Brighton today (14 September) over the state of unpaid wages.
They’ll be joining other GMB members outside the TUC conference at the Brighton Centre, as the Union calls for winding up orders for companies, which still owe drivers their salaries.
Paul Maloney, GMB regional secretary, said, "The doctors who made the decision to outsource the service have to accept responsibility for the failure of the contract to pay the wages of the staff and keep the ambulances in fuel.
“GMB will protest outside each of the surgeries of the doctors who made the decision that has led to these NHS staff not being paid. GMB will also seek winding up orders in court against all of the companies involved. In the meantime, GMB will provide hardship payments to the members to enable them to buy food for their families."
