LSE CLEANERS’ STRIKE UPDATE:

Following a vote of UVW members at the LSE this morning a decision has been made to suspend the strike action due to take place over the coming days in order to await the employment tribunal’s decision at Alba Pasmino’s unfair dismissal hearing next week, a decision to which the LSE has now finally committed in writing to abiding by.

Furthermore, the cleaners do not wish to disturb the student’s graduation ceremonies which, incidentally, management were perfectly happy to jeopardise through their initial unwillingness to resolve this dispute.

If the tribunal finds in Alba’s favour and she is not reinstated accordingly then strike action will be resumed.

Furthermore, please note that the LSE has stooped to a new and disturbing low today by issuing a memo to all cleaners shamelessly suggesting that the LSE’s unnecessary decision to heavily securitise a cleaners’ strike might leave the LSE vulnerable to a terrorist attack because “during this period of heightened security your actions will force us to divert security staff away from being alert to possible threats.”
