The University of London is planning to make eight cleaners redundant.  

The university has decided to change the scope of the cleaning contract prior to in-housing cleaners in November. This decision, which lacks any financial justification, will make eight cleaners unemployed in the midst of a major health and economic crisis.

Most of these cleaners have been working at the frontline during the pandemic, ensuring that the Institution and its Residence Halls continued to run safely.

After taking risks and giving their best during a pandemic, UoL treats them as disposable labour. Please sign and share in support of our colleagues!
