The ISS workers have been battling for decent levels of pay in a long running campaign, with the wealthy company refusing to grant any increase since 2011, a position the union has described as “simply disgraceful and based on nothing but pure greed.”
Following rock solid strike action the length of the contract last week RMT has confirmed that there will be a further strike starting at 00:01 hours on Friday 15th August 2014 and ending at 23:59 on Saturday 16th August 2014 as the pressure is ratcheted up to force ISS to end the scandal of poverty pay.
Picket lines will be mounted at stations along the route as RMT takes its campaign for a fair deal on pay and working conditions for the ISS cleaners direct to the passengers who use the East Coast services.
