    Story

    Unite members at St Mungo's are striking for a 10% pay rise after our pay has been cut in real terms by 25% since 2010. At the same time, the salary of our CEO has increased by 77% since 2013, from £107k to £189,418.

    St Mungo's is a leading UK homelessness charity in the UK, with many workers supporting homeless people on the frontline. We've been expected to take larger and increasingly complex caseloads over the past decade, with homelessness and rough sleeping increasing drastically and services cut, whilst our pay has been slashed year- on-year.

    Now we're saying enough is enough. We've made it clear to senior management that we cannot continue to support vulnerable people in our services when many of us are struggling to afford our own bills.

    93% of members that voted in our strike ballot voted to strike and we are planning to strike for 4 weeks to begin with to make our message heard.

    Please contribute to our hardship fund to ensure we have the leverage we need to get the pay rise St Mungo's workers on the frontline need and deserve.

    You can find out more about why we're striking here.

    At the end of this industrial action, should there be a surplus of funds, the Branch will redirect those funds into similar hardship funds in the future.
