Dear colleague

JUSTICE FOR ABM CLEANERS

As you may know, RMT is currently in dispute with ABM in our campaign for “Justice for ABM Cleaners.”

Yesterday, 26th June 2019, your Regional Organiser John Leach along with RMT ABM representatives met the company's Contract Director and his HR team face to face to demand improvements on the key issues at stake in this dispute:

- Free Staff Travel
- Decent Company Sick Pay
- Access to a direct pension scheme, same as the TfL pension scheme
