London AF Supports UVW strike

Members of London AF are supporting the indefinite strike called by UNited Voices of the World cleaners at 100 Wood Street in the City of London.

As the UVW say:”Please come and support our protest in support of the cleaners at 100 Wood Street who are paid poverty wages and are being unlawfully dismissed by the anti-union cleaning contractor Thames Cleaning and Support Services Limited (“Thames”).

All the cleaners are asking for are their rights to be respected and to be paid a wage they can live on.

Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is for Thames.

Thames has refused stop sacking cleaners and has blamed CBRE, the Fortune 500 commercial real estate company that manages 100 Wood Street, for the cleaners poor wages.

However, Thames itself decided to spend over £20,000 in applying to the High Court for an injunction to stop the cleaners striking or protesting within eye sight of 100 Wood Street. They failed.

If Thames can afford to waste money for injuction applications they can afford to stop sacking the cleaners and pay them a living wage.

No ifs, No buts, No cuts! Living Wage now!

There will also be another protest between 1-2pm and protests every day.

IMPORTANT INFO:

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CLEANERS WILL START INDEFINITE STRIKE ACTION ON WEDNESDAY 8TH JUNE AND SO THERE WILL BE A PICKET LINE ATTENDED BY CURRENT AND FORMER CLEANERS AND SOME UVW OFFICIALS.”

Best times to go 8-10 am and 1-2 pm.
