Protests to continue at UEL

After the success of the protests by cleaning workers and academic staff at UEL on the last two Tuesdays, the protests are set to continue over the coming weeks.

The cleaners are campaigning over four basic issues:

  • Unfair pay
  • Rising workloads
  • Cuts to holidays & contracts
  • Favouritism

See our UEL campaign page for more details.

 

Support the Virgo Fidelis cleaners

In a not uncommon move, Virgo Fidelis School changed suppliers for its cleaning contract in 2019.

The cleaning contract is now with Ridge Crest Cleaning, who have tried to enforce illegal changes to cleaners’ terms and conditions.

Needless to say, cleaners at the school are not putting up with this. But Ridge Crest has been intimidating cleaners who resist the changes, for example by disciplining those who refuse to accept the increased workloads.
