2 June 2014
Three of the University of London’s residence halls, the Garden Halls, are due to close down on 30 June, placing over 80 people at risk of redundancy. The companies have refused to negotiate with the workers’ trade unions.
Workers are striking from Friday 6th June, continuing the following Monday-Thursday.
COME SUPPORT THE PICKET LINE! 7.30am-12.30 each strike day.
Among these people are the workers who have been at the heart of the University of London Living Wage Campaign and the 3 Cosas Campaign. These predominantly women cleaners have been on dozens of protests and various days of strikes in order to improve their working conditions. Cofely is now only too happy to get rid of them.
Join them in protest Friday 23 May at 1pm at Senate House to demand the following:
1. No redundancies
2. Cofely and Aramark negotiate with the IWGB
3. All workers are transferred without losing their length of service
4. All workers are transferred without losing the London Living Wage or the improved sick pay, holidays, and pensions
