Cleaners to take part in first national strike

Cleaners to take part in first national strike

26 November 2022

RMT Press Office:

RMT members working as cleaners throughout the transport network have voted for strike action.

Over 1,000 contracted out cleaners working for the likes of Churchill, Atalian Servest and Mitie are eligible to take strike action. 
Cleaners are demanding £15 an hour, company sick pay, decent holidays and good pensions from contractors - some of whom are raking in profits of over £100 million.
The union’s NEC will decide next week what days strike action will take place. 
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “This is an historic result and I congratulate cleaner members across the transport network. 
“It is scandalous that multi-million pound companies are making hand over fist profits while not paying cleaners properly. 
“RMT will fight every step of the way to end the super-exploitation of contracted out cleaners and will not rest until these greedy companies pay up.”
