Venue: The Queen's Walk, London SE1 2AA
At 2pm on Wednesday 21 February, we will be holding demos to protest against the treatment by outsourcing companies (especially new mega contractor ABM) of cleaners on the London transport network.
The first demo will take place outside City Hall (Address: The Queen's Walk, SE1 2AA) with participants then moving on to protest outside the nearby ABM headquarters (Address: George House, 75 – 83 Borough High Street, SE1 1NH).
The demo is intended to name and shame the people responsible for the poor treatment of cleaners and lobby for a change. We demand that cleaners be directly employed by TfL, that they – like their colleagues – receive free travel, decent sick pay and improved wages reflecting the often anti-social hours which they work.
The London Mayor needs to act NOW. ABM is already busy ripping up the sick pay policy of workers who transferred to it from outsourcing company “Vinci”. The demo will be letting everyone know what is going on.
Members are invited to attend and encouraged to bring banners, flags etc. Following the demos, there will be recruitment activity, designed to boost union membership amongst ABM workers.
(Note to London Transport Region branches: Supporting attendance at this day of action, is a legitimate use of branch funds).
