STOPPING TUBE CLEANERS' SICK PAY ENDANGERS US ALL!
London Underground cleaners are on the frontline against Covid-19, keeping the Tube as clean and safe as possible.
London Underground's cleaning contractor, ABM, pays them just £10.75 per hour. At the beginning of the pandemic, the RMT union won an agreement from TfL and ABM to pay cleaners at their full shift rate during sickness and self-isolation. But ABM has now withdrawn this, leaving cleaners receiving only Statutory Sick Pay (£95.85 per week) when off sick. No-one can live on that!
Cleaners must now choose between following public health advice and impoverishment - a situation that puts us all - London underground workers and passengers - at risk!
