Statement on Industrial Action
Freebridge Community Housing's trade union workers have again balloted to take part in industrial action.
As a result, strike days have been announced over the festive period. This commences at 08:00 hours on 27th December 2023 and continues each day up to 5th January 2024, when the action concludes at 16:00 hours.
The trade union members affected are responsible for providing home maintenance repairs and estate services across Freebridge properties.
We do understand that this is very inconvenient for some customers and whole-heartedly apologise.
Freebridge Community Housing is a not-for-profit company, and as such, any surplus goes back into our tenants’ homes and communities.
We have a moral obligation to ensure that we balance a fair offer to our colleagues, against investment in our tenants’ homes and services.
We value all of our team and demonstrate that in the generous wider package that we offer.
We want to reassure our customers that our colleagues are working to cover our core hours, out of hours and emergencies.
If you need us, you should get in touch via telephone or email as usual.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding and co-operation at this time.
