Concierge, cleaners and maintenance win union recognition at luxury apartments

“The cleaners, concierge and maintenance workers at WEQ want to make our workplace better, with clear and constructive dialogue we can do this”

Francesco Lombardo, West End Quay concierge, UVW strike leader

Today the CAC (Central Arbitration Committee) has declared that United Voices of the World, UVW, has won recognition at West End Quays forcing the contractor LB Navana (formerly Lee Baron) to negotiate with UVW on behalf of all cleaners, concierge and maintenance workers –  95% of whom are UVW members. 

This win follows last month’s win at WEQ when our members secured an 8% pay rise and a Christmas bonus equivalent to one weeks’ pay following 2 rounds of strikes over the summer. 

Francesco Lombardo, West End Quay concierge, UVW strike leader said

“This is a great achievement, union recognition at West End Quays is now more important than ever. The management structure is changing and we are look forward to opening opening talks with new director of the building. The cleaners, concierge and maintenance workers at WEQ want to make our workplace better, with clear and constructive dialogue we can do this. By the time we meet with management we will 100% unionised so together we can guarantee workers rights and maintain the quality service WEQ residents are accustomed to.”
