ABM: More of the same

We're a month into the new "super-contract" for cleaning, with American firm having taken over from Interserve (the transfer of ISS staff to ABM is due to take place in February), and it very much seems to be a case of "meet the new boss, same as the old boss."

Cleaners report that the scandal of short payment is continuing, with workers finding their pay packets considerably lighter than they should be.

This is theft: there is no excuse for any employer to pay their workers less than they are owed.

After RMT's successful demonstration highlighting cleaners' demands caused a stir at City Hall last Thursday, now's the time to redouble efforts to organise cleaners and build towards action that can force the new contractor to get its act together.
