Cleaners, porters, security officers, receptionists, gardeners, post room and audio-visual staff at the University of London will strike on 25-26 April.

The workers, organised by the IWGB union, are employed by a range of outsourcing companies that have contracts with the university. They are fighting to be directly employed by the university and for parity of terms and conditions with currently directly-employed workers. Outsourced workers currently receive inferior pensions, and less holiday, sick, maternity and paternity pay.

A series of strikes and protests has already forced the university to initiate a review into its outsourced contracts, but it is refusing to involved the union in this process. The outcome of this review was due in March but was postponed until May.
