Cleaners Demo

We note the report of the meeting of our ISS representatives and members which took place on 20 February 2013.

We are appalled that ISS is reportedly not paying the London Living Wage (LLW), having not increased it when the rate was increased. We insist that ISS increase its employees’ wages in line with the LLW uprate at the time that it is uprated, not six months later. We instruct the General Secretary to make urgent representations to ISS, its contracting company Tube Lines, that company’s owners Transport For London, and to the TfL Board, GLA and Mayor, and to seek press coverage on this matter.
