LONDON LIVING WAGE FOR CLEANERS AT JOHN LEWIS
EDM #301
Tabled 02 July 2012
2012-13 Session
That this House notes that the cleaners employed at John Lewis Partnership's Oxford Street store under contract by Integrated Cleaning Management Ltd are paid below the London living wage; expresses disappointment that John Lewis has been praised as a model employer but has failed to ensure the compliance of its contractors with the Greater London Authority rate of 8.30 per hour which is designed to provide a minimum acceptable quality of life; is concerned that the cleaners are facing excessive cuts in their jobs and hours, whilst their trade union IWW has been refused recognition for collective bargaining; and expects the cleaners to be treated with respect, paid fairly and remain employed in sufficient numbers to meet the demands of a flagship store of Oxford Street.
