Motion text

That this House recognises the vital work of those in the cleaning profession; supports the call from Mr Guy Stallard, Director of Facilities at KPMG and a member of the Living Wage Advisory Group, expressed at the British Cleaning Council Sustainability Conference, for cleaners to be paid no less than the living wage; further recognises that the living wage has lifted 10,000 families out of poverty, reduces staff turnover for employers, promotes a positive and flexible work attitude and increases productivity; believes that employers should pay the living wage both inside and outside of London; and calls on employers around the country to pay cleaners a fair wage and sign up to the living wage initiative and related accreditation process, which is now the mark of a responsible and forward thinking employer.
