5th Day of Strike Action at the LSE

he cleaners at the LSE, all of whom are migrants and BAME workers, will be back out on strike on 24th May for what will be the 5th day of a weekly indefinte strike.

All they are asking for is dignity and equality and despite waiting 8 months the LSE has still refused to concede either and has instead tried to undermine and smear the cleaners campaign in ways that would make the Daily Mail shudder.

The LSE has failed to offer and settlemt to this dispute, and is instead determined to perpetuate inequality and maintain a two tier wokrkforce where cleaners are excluded from the LSE community, forced to get by on signifiacntly inferior T&Cs (annual leave, sick pay, and maternity/paternity/adoption leave pay) and generally treated second class.

Despite the LSE's lies, spin and disrespect the cleaners have remained more than patient and have repeatedly tried to amicably settle this dispute. However, they are clear that they will not be strung along with empty gestures from the LSE’s highly-paid managers and directors. Therefore these stirkes will contiue until victory.
