Cleaners Pushed Around

Cleaners on the Bakerloo line have reported being moved from their usual locations to work elsewhere on the line, including train pickers at Elephant being sent to do accommodation cleaning at Stonebridge Park.

These displacements seem to be the result of ABM cutting back on its use of agency staff to cover holidays, sickness, etc., and using permanent staff from other locations to fill the gaps instead.

Instead of this cost-cutting exercise, which sees cleaners pushed around to unfamiliar workplaces, often in inconvenient locations for them in terms of travel to and from work, ABM should give permanent contracts to any agency staff it has been using, and ensure it has enough permanent employees to cover the work.
