Strike meetings at rest homes

8:20 am on 25 January 2012

About 900 union members employed at 20 rest homes by the Radius group are holding stop work meetings on Wednesday to vote on strike action.

The Service & Food Workers Union and the Nurses Organisation say Radius has not passed on an 1.73% increase in funding from district health boards in 2010.

The unions says they are confident their members will vote in favour of strike action.

Radius Residential Care could not be reached for comment.
