Motion text

That this House is appalled that in the 21st century, cleaners employed on the ISS cleaning contract on London Underground (LU) continue to suffer from exploitation and are employed on far inferior basic conditions than their LU colleagues; notes that the ISS contract is due to expire in March 2013 and calls on the Mayor of London not to renew the contract but instead bring this cleaning service in-house; and believes that not only will this lead to the more effective management and provision of cleaning services on LU but will ensure that cleaners have the same basic conditions as their other LU colleagues including decent pensions, fair sick pay, holidays and dignity and respect at work.
