The Conservative's decision to cut Universal Credit is a political choice, not an economic necessity. If they can find £37bn for the shareholders of Serco, then they can find £6bn for the families and working people who've been hit hardest by this pandemic. #CancelTheCut
Under its terms, Serco is contracted to perform duties including bin collections and street and drain cleaning until 2035.
After months of disruption, we are all getting fed up of Serco’s failure to empty our bins. Further strikes are only going to impact hardworking council taxpayers. We all need Serco, the Council, and unions to sort this out.
Nurses have seen us through this crisis and saved many lives; if £37 billion can be found to pay SERCO for a failed Track & Trace system, surely we should just pay NHS staff properly. You can't clap for NHS workers and cut their pay at the same time.
Despite Serco's disastrous role in the test-and-trace scheme, their top two executives were handed £7.4m - including £5.5m bonuses - in 2020. The Tories' ideologically-driven obsession with outsourcing is failing the many whilst lining the pockets of the few. #SackSerco
