Next month hundreds of Oxfam workers are to strike in a dispute over pay and will walk out for 17 days, in the first strike in the history of the charity.

Unite union reported in October that they had cash reserves of £44.6 million in 2022 and that workers average wages has been cut by 21% in real terms since 2018.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said, “Oxfam wants to end poverty and says it is on the side of unions.

“Yet its own workers report having to use foodbanks, it refuses to engage with the only union representing its workforce and it is considering using unpaid labour to break a strike.

“This is rank hypocrisy from an organisation that should know better.”

“Oxfam is an extremely wealthy organisation and can afford to put forward an acceptable offer without impacting its charity work in the slightest.

“Its workers have their union’s total and unflinching support as they strike to make sure that happens.”
