RMT to begin balloting ABM cleaners

Dear Colleagues,

JUSTICE FOR ABM CLEANERS (LUL/14/2)

A dispute situation was declared by the National Executive Committee over the company's failure to provide free staff travel, a company-wide sick pay scheme and a decent company pension (Ref: IR/240/19, 13th June 2019).

No progress on these matters has been achieved, despite the best efforts of our representatives and negotiators. Therefore, notice of a ballot of all RMT members at the company was served on ABM this week and the ballot opens on Monday 28th October 2019 and closes on Tuesday 19th November 2019.
