MITIE accuses cleaner of playing into the hands of terrorists

MITIE stoops to a new, despicable low. Our trade union member, and President of UVW, who has been active in protests and strike action ove the past three years, has been accused of potentially playing into terrorist hands by posting a 10 second video of himself on Facebook cleaning in the Barbican (…yes, you read that correctly).

Here is what was said: 
“Manager: Do you think this [the video] could possibly cause a security issue?
Trade union rep: What security issue? 
Manager: The security issue in that there is a video on the internet of the Barbican Centre.
Trade union rep: And how is that a security issue?
Manager: The Barbican is a terrorist reconnaissance site. That site [the Barbican] could potentially be targeted by terrorists for such a “security breach” [the video of a cleaner cleaning].
