Protest to Reinstate the 'Wood Street 4' & pay the living wage!

  • 100 Wood Street London, EC2V 7AN United Kingdom (map)

Please come and support our protest at 5.00pm on Wednesday, 29th June, in support of the cleaners at 100 Wood Street who are paid poverty wages and have been unlawfully dismissed by the anti-union, anti-living wage cleaning contractor Thames Cleaning and Support Services Limited ("Thames"). 

As well as coinciding with the start of the 4th week of the first all out strike in the history of the City of London, this protest also marks the start of the national campaign againsst CBRE, the Fortune 500 commercial real estate company who is either encouraging Thames Clenaing's disgusting emoloyment practices.

All the cleaners are asking for are their rights to be respected and to be paid a wage they can live on. 

Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is for Thames and CBRE. 

Thames says it has no money but it spent over £20,000 in applying to the High Court for an injunction to stop the cleaners striking and to stop them protesting within eye sight of 100 Wood Street. They failed on both counts.

IMPORTANT INFO: 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CLEANERS WILL BE ON THEIR 3RD WEEK OF INDEFINITE STRIKE ACTION ON WEDNESDAY THE 29TH JUNE AND SO THERE WILL BE A PICKET LINE ATTENDED BY CURRENT AND FORMER CLEANERS AND SOME UVW OFFICIALS. 

THE PROTEST MUST NOT JOIN THE PICKET. THE PROTEST MUST REMAIN AT ALL TIMES, AND WITHOUT EXCEPTION, AT LEAST 10 METRES AWAY FROM ANY ENTRANCES OR EXITS TO 100 WOOD STREET. 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND CO-OPERATION.
