Familiar story for cleaners

Submitted by Tubeworker on Thu, 07/06/2018 - 19:37

In a development that surprised absolutely no-one, many ABM cleaners have found themselves one day short in the latest pay packet.

Short payment was an all-too-regular feature of life under ISS and Interserve and, once again, it seems to be a case of "meet the new boss, same as the old boss" with ABM.

To compound matters, ABM is operating a policy of not issuing physical copies of pay slips to cleaners, meaning anyone without regular access to the internet or a printer can struggle to check whether they've been paid properly. When workers have consistently pestered their supervisors and managers, paper payslips have usually been issued. The lesson there is: make a fuss.

The question of how the short payment will be resolved remains open. Tubeworker understands that RMT reps are preparing a collective grievance. If the money isn't paid immediately, further action will be needed.
