To coincide with this historic event, RMT has also published a new report which shows why this campaign is so vital. Based on a survey of cleaning grades members this report shows the real impact of the cost of living crisis on our cleaning keyworkers. You can see our press release here: https://bit.ly/3DDyFO0
We are an all-grades industrial union and we stand together with our cleaning grades members. Please do all you can to help them win their crucial ballot.
