Tube Cleaners Strike Picket Lines
"With the eyes of the world on the London Olympics... [we] must not forget the London transport cleaners on minimum pay rates doing some of the dirtiest jobs." - Bob Crow
London Transport Cleaners, working on the tube for ISS and Initial will be on strike again between 05:30 hours on Thursday 9th August 2012 and 05:29 hours on Saturday 11th August 2012.
We can support them in their fight for a London Living Wage by joining picket lines in the morning and evening.
This second strike follows the previous rock solid action on the opening weekend of the Olympics for fair pay and Olympics recognition and reward.
RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said: "With the eyes of the world on the London Olympics the many millions enjoying the events around the globe must not forget the London transport cleaners on minimum pay rates doing some of the dirtiest jobs in often appalling conditions with no Olympics recognition and reward whatsoever."
There will be pickets at the following depots and stations. Pickets will be held at 6am and 7pm.
Cleaners protest for a living wage.
- Ealing Common depot
- Morden depot
- Golders Green
- Oakwood (Cockfosters depot)

- Ruislip depot
