RMT calls on London mayor to end exploitation of Tube cleaners

MPs call on London Mayor to end exploitation of Tube cleaners as RMT says treatment of workers “shames the capital.”

TUBE UNION RMT has welcomed a motion tabled in Parliament today by MPs calling on Transport for London, which is chaired by the London Mayor, to end the exploitation of Underground cleaners.

The MPs intervention came as RMT cleaners are due to demonstrate outside City Hall later today and RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said in an open letter to the London Mayor that the “continuation of such low workplace standards and conditions shame the capital.”

48 hours of strike action goes ahead on DLR over breakdown in industrial relations

RMT cleaners, security staff and travel safe officers on Docklands Light Railway will be taking part in a further 48 hour phase of strike action from today over a comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations after talks failed this week due to the intransigent attitude of the management. The workers are employed by contractor ISS on the KAD contract.
