London Underground Cleaners win

Submitted by AWL on 7 December, 2007 - 12:16

Tube cleaners working for contractors to Metronet are to receive substantial pay rises when Transport for London takes over the failed privateer’s contracts, marking a huge victory for the RMT on London Underground.

A minimum of £7.20 an hour (London Living Wage) will now go to 900 cleaners on former Metronet contracts.

For some cleaners paid only the minimum legal wage of £5.85 it will mean an increase of at least £1.35 an hour.

The RMT continues to campaign for higher wages from all the cleaning contractors working on the Tube.
