1 Mins read

UNISON, the largest trade union within the Four Seasons Group has been notified that the sale of the Garvagh Care Home has fallen through and the home will close in May 2016.

Regional organiser Brian Ferguson stated: “This news is even more traumatic, given that there was a potential buyer and residents believed their home was secure.”

UNISON has met with staff who are devastated with the prospect of redundancy as there is no likely redeployment. The union is also currently in negotiations with the company and will enter into negotiations with the Northern Health Trust and the Health and Social Care Board in an attempt to the keep this care home from closing.

UNISON is calling on the Northern Health Trust for immediate intervention to protect the rights of the residents, and the jobs of the Four Seasons care staff in Garvagh.

They are also calling on the Health and Social Care Board to work with UNISON to plan for the future of all nursing homes.
