Cleaners unite: join our meeting to discuss the issues important to you

If you are a PCS member and work as a cleaner, join the Cleaners United Meeting on Saturday 11 December, 12-1.30pm on Zoom.

PCS is part of a coalition of trade unions and campaign groups working together to achieve national change across the cleaning industry.

Cleaners endure some of the worse working conditions of any worker in the UK. From low wages, to no sick pay, to discrimination and sexual harassment, to unmanageable workloads and no collective voice through trade union recognition.

The campaign is a three-year, bottom-up campaign where cleaners will be central to identifying the issues to campaign on and will be instrumental in leading the direction of the campaign.

There is a meeting on Saturday 11 December from 12-1.30pm on Zoom. The meeting will hear the results of a listening campaign carried out by Cleaners Utd which included interviewing some PCS members. At the meeting, cleaners will have their say on what the solutions should be to the biggest problems they face. Register for the event online

John Moloney, PCS assistant general secretary will also explain how PCS members employed as cleaners at the Royal Parks recently won occupational sick pay, proper contracts of employment and trade union recognition. 

The meeting will be run in English but will be translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Bulgarian, Romanian and Polish.

If you are cleaner working on a central government contract PCS is the union for you. Join us now
