    Story

    RMT members of Churchill cleaning contract have voted to strike over pay and conditions and will walk out on 23rd February 2022.

    These unsung heroes have put their lives on the line during the pandemic and are paid only the living wage. Not only that, they get no sick pay and have a contract that says any policy they do have may be altered or rescinded without notice.

    This fund is to help these staff get through what will be a difficult time financially while they stand up for themselves against this oppressive organisation.

      Contracted out cleaning staff will mount picket lines for 11 days from April 27 to May 7 in their fight for a £15 per hour pay rate. Currently cleaners working for Churchill at GTR can earn as little £8.91 an hour. They also demand company sick pay and free travel across the network, in line every other worker on the railway. This on the back of a cost-of-living crisis with prices rising at their fastest rate in 30 years and inflation running at 7 percent. In 2020 they made £39m profit yet refused to raise wages to a decent standard.

      Just an update, the struggle is ongoing, another walkout this weekend 12th & 13th March. This time picket lines will be out in force at Brighton Station and other locations across the network. I've added a picture from the walkout last time round of the demonstration outside the Houses of Parliament

      Your treatment is outrageous. We need an end to outsourcing and the bringing of cleaning in house to a nationalised rail industry. Privatisation has been a disaster
