It's time to kick agencies like AGS People and Premier Work Services off the job, and ensure direct employment for all cleaners.
As we've previously reported, ABM are carrying out their commitment to reduce the amount of agency labour on their contract in the least fair and transparent way imaginable. Rather than transferring agency cleaners onto direct contracts on the basis of how long they've been on the job, lists are going round that seem to be based on who managers and supervisors want to give the jobs to.
Meanwhile, agency cleaners continue to report short payment, with some receiving threats when they try to stand up for themselves.
All cleaners must be given direct employment now, and RMT must continue to press the demand for cleaning to be brought back in house.
