RMT members working for cleaning contractors Initial and ISS will strike again this week in their fight for decent pay and an Olympic bonus.

They have already staged a two-day strike, over the opening weekend of the Olympic games. This week’s strike will see the cleaners walk out on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 August.

RMT general secretary Bob Crow says:

With the eyes of the world on the London Olympics, the many millions enjoying the events around the globe must not forget the London transport cleaners on minimum pay rates doing some of the dirtiest jobs in often appalling conditions with no Olympics recognition and reward whatsoever.

It is these same staff who have played a key role in keeping services clean and safe who are now forced again by their employers to take action for a living wage and recognition of their Olympics efforts.

RMT members across the country are involved in a series of strikes over low pay and to demand bonuses for the heavier workload during the Olympics.
