Ballot Preparations Underway As ISS Fingerprinting Dispute Continues

USE OF FINGERPRINTING TO BOOK ON – ISS (LUL CONTRACT) (BR1/27/2)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/261/14, 3rd October 2014), Branches will recall that we were in dispute with ISS last year over the imposition of a biometric fingerprint system for staff to book on for duty. Members took industrial action with some even locked out by the Company for refusing to use the biometric machines. Agreement was then reached at ACAS which we hoped had resolved the matter however, the Lead Officer reports that management are now in breach of this agreement.

Dispute Materials: Reinstate Clara

Clara Osagiede, RMT cleaners’ secretary on London Underground, has been dismissed from her job for the crime of fighting for workplace justice for London’s transport cleaners.

Bosses at Interserve – a private contractor that LU use for cleaning – concocted a series of spurious charges in order to get rid of an activist who is a thorn in their side.

Interserve is a company with an appalling record on industrial relations across all their contracts in the railway industry which exploits their low-paid workers for as much profit as they can.

RMT Wins 50 Permanent Jobs For Cleaners

RMT campaigning has forced cleaning company Interserve to commit to hiring 50 AGS agency cleaners on permanent contracts across London Underground by the end of April 2015.

This shows that union campaigning gets results. Our exposure of AGS’s exploitative practises, such as forcing workers to register as “self-employed”, is putting pressure on Interserve. Let’s keep up the fight and win more permanent contracts for cleaners.
