Joe Attard of the King's College London UCU discusses the record result in favour of national strike action amongst university academic staff. Workers and students must now unite and fight to defend pensions, pay, and public services.
A Unison-led demonstration was held outside King’s College London on Friday 1st December as part of an on-going campaign to bring the university’s cleaning staff in-house. Around 100 staff and students were present, demanding justice for the cleaners. Joe Attard of the KCL Marxists reports on the latest events in the cleaners' fight for decent pay and conditions.
To cut costs and maximise profits, King’s College London outsources its cleaning services, with workers who are on precarious contracts, earning just over the minimum wage, and with limited sick pay and holiday time. But the KCL cleaners are fighting back. Joe Russell reports on the continuing struggle of cleaners at KCL for decent pay and conditions.
