Another win for London cleaners

Submitted by Matthew on 24 August, 2011 - 12:44

Cleaners working at the landmark Heron Tower near Liverpool Street in London have won a pay increase to a “living-wage” rate of £8.30 per hour, and have secured commitments from management to resolve issues of staff shortages and unfair dismissal practices.

Cleaning contractor LCC also agreed to open up formal discussions with the workers’ union, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), with a view to establishing a recognition agreement.

The IWW’s negotiations were backed up by solidarity demonstrations, part of an ongoing campaign to organise City of London workers which has already won victories for cleaners employed by Ocean Contract Cleaning at Guildhall.
