Workers cleaning Facebook’s London offices are protesting outside them weekly about the sacking of their union rep and workloads which are making them unwell. The next protest is 4pm on Friday 15 October at the Facebook office at 10 Brock St, NW1 3FG.
The workers’ union CAIWU (Cleaning and Allied Independent Workers’ Union) will be balloting for strikes on issues including the sacking of Guillermo Camacho. They are also calling for Facebook to terminate their contract with Churchill Cleaning and bring them in-house.
Cleaners and facilities workers have won or are pushing for insourcing at a number of London institutions, but at the same time a growing number of union reps are being victimised. At University of the Arts London, where there is a vibrant insourcing struggle, Unison rep Luis Vargas, also a member of CAIWU, has been suspended.
