Bring outsourced University of London workers back in house

Over 100 cleaners, porters, receptionists and other outsourced workers at the University of London will strike on 6 June.

Workers organised by the IWGB union previously struck on 25-26 April in a campaign to be brought back in-house and have parity of terms and conditions with in-house workers. Outsourced workers currently receive inferior pensions, and less holiday, sick, maternity and paternity pay.

Protests in support of the strikes on 25 April were attended by hundreds of supporters, including Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell.

A series of strikes and protests has already forced the university to initiate a review into its outsourced contracts, but it is refusing to involved the union in this process.
The outcome of this review was due in March but was postponed until May.
