Dear Colleague

Solidarity with our Tube Cleaners: RMT Parliamentary demonstration & rally

​Tuesday 29th January 2019
5.00pm: (sharp) Demonstration opposite Parliament (Old Palace Yard, SW1P 3JY)
6.30pm: Rally in the Houses of Parliament

London Underground’s 3000 cleaners have been outsourced to global contractor ABM. Despite working unsocial hours, in dirty and hazardous conditions, our cleaners are being treated less favourably compared to other workers directly employed by Underground. That means inferior sick pay, holidays, pensions and travel facilities. On top of this the cleaning workforce is set to be cut by a third from 3000 to 2000, piling the pressure on these hard-pressed workers.

RMT is holding a demo and rally at Parliament to demand:

  • No Cleaning Job Cuts
  • Equal Conditions with London Underground workers
  • Bring all cleaning work in – house.

All RMT Branches are asked to send a delegation to the demo and rally. Please also ensure your Branch cleaning member’s coordinator is included in the delegation.

We are an all grades union. 

Please show solidarity with our cleaning members on 29th January.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mick Cash
General Secretary
