RMT report on Tube Cleaners reveals 'one in three said they had been treated unfairly at work'

RMT Tube cleaners’ report released today outside Parliament reveals fears that cleaning contractor is putting profits before passengers

A new report by Tube union RMT released today at a demonstration outside Parliament, with the support of MPs, shows London Underground cleaning staff believe US owned corporate giant ABM, which is responsible for cleaning the Tube, is putting profits before passengers and is engaged in widespread discrimination against cleaning workers.

Support our ABM Cleaners

Hope to see members from all functions on the cleaners demo at Parliament tomorrow.

The demonstration will take place on Wednesday 29 January at 13:00 opposite Old Palace Yard at the Houses of Parliament.

I recently attended a meeting with RMT's parliamentary group where the MPs agreed to write to the London Mayor in support of our demands that the Mayor immediately grants staff travel facilities to all cleaners.
