London cleaners at Facebook, members of CAIWU, have voted to go out on strike on Christmas Eve, with more strikes to follow in the new year if management doesn’t change tack (or Facebook itself doesn’t intervene).
The workers’ employer, Churchill Cleaning, has imposed excessive workloads and has sacked the cleaners’ union rep, Guillermo Camacho. There’s also a wide range of health and safety issues at the workplace, which need addressing.
CAIWU members at Rathbone and Shaftesbury cleaners are also considering a vote on industrial action.
Pickets will be out at Facebook, 10 Brock Street, London NW1 3HF
