The IWGB organizes the UK’s most hyper-exploited workers, most of whom are women and migrants. These are the people that clean the toilets of the city, sweep its floors and carry out the portering. They travel on the early-morning buses or trains, when most of London is still in bed, and spend their days doing shifts for two or three different employers. To most people they are one thing: invisible.

Over the past 12 months alone our campaigns have led to cleaners and other low-paid workers winning improved sick pay, holidays and pensions and achieving the London Living Wage (now £9.40). Just recently we have secured these improvements for workers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine; and we have also won the London Living Wage at the Royal College of Music and the Royal College of Art.

On top of this, we provide free language classes; organize social events, provide free employment law advice in our workers advice centre, support members in disciplinaries, grievances and at employment tribunals.

We’re always short of resources for our work, so all donations are welcome, either via Paypal or using the bank details below.
