Check http://www.uvwunion.org.uk/ or facebook for updates on the ongoing picket

Please come and support United Voices of the World strike in support of the cleaners from 8 June – at 100 Wood Street, London EC2V 7AN – who are paid poverty wages and are being unlawfully dismissed by the anti-union cleaning contractor Thames Cleaning and Support Services Limited (“Thames”).

IMPORTANT INFO:

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CLEANERS WILL START INDEFINITE STRIKE ACTION ON WEDNESDAY 8TH JUNE AND SO THERE WILL BE A PICKET LINE ATTENDED BY CURRENT AND FORMER CLEANERS AND SOME UVW OFFICIALS.

THE PROTEST MUST NOT JOIN THE PICKET. THE PROTEST MUST REMAIN AT ALL TIMES, AND WITHOUT EXCEPTION, AT LEAST 10 METRES AWAY FROM ANY ENTRANCES OR EXITS TO 100 WOOD STREET.

Ongoing UVW union’s indefinite strike action for #LivingWage workers from 8 June @ 100 Wood Street, EC2V 7AN

Thames Cleaning pays poverty wages to its staff, who have to clean the offices of some of the wealthiest financial corporations in the City. The cleaners who asked for a living wage were immediately sacked.

Thames Cleaning is an anti-union company that claims it can’t afford to treat its staff decently. And yet it spent over £20,000 in the High Court trying stop them from striking. THEY FAILED.

The cleaners’ indefinite strike begins tomorrow at 8am at 100 Wood Street, EC2V 7AN (near the Museum of London). Come and support them – but make sure you join the protest, which because of some stupid law has to remain 10 metres away from the building, and not the picket line, which only union members can join.
