Cleaners Protest At Stratford Station

RMT cleaners will be holding a protest joined by General Secretary Bob Crow outside of Stratford Station at midday on the day of the Olympic Opening Ceremony - 27th July.

Cleaners will be protesting for a London Living wage and Olympic Bonus. These are the workers who will be clearing up after up to a million extra passengers have travelled each day on London's public transport during the Olympic period.

Over the first weekend of the Olympics, cleaners working for Initial and ISS on London Underground as well as those working for Carlisle on the DLR will also be taking industrial action.

RMT have launched a major campaign with Labour Start for an Olympic Bonus and living wage for cleaners - read more and get involved here.
