Strike at the LSE

BREAKING NEWS: Due to the LSE’s continued arrogant and elitist refusal to speak to the cleaners and to bring their terms and conditions in line with the rest of LSE staff, or to review workloads/disciplinary procedures and reinstate unlawfully sacked Alba, UVW has given official notice to ballot the cleaners at the LSE for strike action. 

This is the first ballot of outsourced staff in the 126 year history of LSE. Ballot period is expected to close by the end of February. 

If you haven’t already donated to their strike fund please consider doing so here https://www.uvwunion.org.uk/justiceforlsecleaners/

Here are a few videos from a few different momentS throughout the Justice for LSE cleaners campaign so far.
