Resolution: Cleaners

This resolution, proposed by Finsbury Park branch and seconded by Camden 3 branch, was passed unanimously by the Regional Council meeting on 26 March.

We note with increasing concerns the intensification of the attacks on our Cleaning Grade members and Representatives by their Bosses which have led to vindictive sacking spearheaded by ISS.

ISS have now refused to pay the outstanding London Living Wages (LLW) for Cleaning Grade staff working via sub contractors TubeLines and there is no indication that they will pay the LLW for 2009.

This LTRC call upon the Leadership of the RMT to start an immediate campaign among Cleaning Grade members – which if successful, must lead into a ballot for industrial action in order to continue the work of advancement of this section of the workforce.
