ISS cleaners on the JNP are due to transfer onto the new ABM contract in early February. But workers say the transfer process so far has been a shambles.
ISS cleaners have not been given any ABM uniform, with no sign of it arriving soon, but are being told their ISS uniform must be handed back. No interim provisions have been put in place for the switch from ISS's fortnightly payment system to ABM's monthly one, meaning workers could go 40 days without being paid.
Cleaning contractors are treating cleaners like disposable commodities, yet again. They must take their responsibilities to their staff seriously and put measures in place to ensure they're not out of pocket.
