Royal Opera House

Royal Opera House Revisited...

Almost exactly one year ago, CAIWU members won a staggering victory at the Royal Opera House.

Six cleaners employed by Kier at the ROH were dismissed in acts of retribution — the six had been instrumental in organizing a successful London Living Wage campaign. Together, CAIWU and the ROH workers launched a campaign which ended in all six getting their jobs back.

As part of the campaign, the renowned Spanish political artist Yeyei Gomez produced a cartoon which told the story behind the dismissals and explained why the workers were protesting.
