UNISON members employed by Northumbria Healthcare Trust took strike action today in response to the decision of the Foundation Trust to slash mileage rates from 47p per mile to 24p. The workers concerned are Community Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Technical Instructors and Social Workers, who are required to use a car for work, because they work in the community covering large distances to meet the needs of vulnerable, often elderly patients.
