This Friday 20 March at 13.00 hours, cleaners employed by Mitie at global insurance brokers the Willis Group will be demonstrating again outside the Willis Building, 51 Lime Street EC3 7DQ (tube: Liverpool Street or Bank).
The cleaners are all members of Unite the union and their building formed part of the Justice for Cleaners campaign. They were made redundant because they could not switch from a part-time evening to full-time nocturnal shift. Cleaning companies have been trying to enforce this change in a number of key locations in London. Here as elsewhere, it has happened just as cleaners win the Living Wage. Key activists seem to suffer. in this case shop steward Edwin Pazmiro and three colleagues.
Please come and support, and bring anything visible (banners etc) and anything noisy!
Info: Edwin 07931 464 890 or Alberto 07803 634 319 or Williscleaners4justice@live.co.uk. Messages of support welcome.

The demonstrations are supported also by Latin American Workers Association, Schroders bank cleaners, London Coalition Against Poverty, Ecuadorian Movement in the UK (MERU), Colombia and Bolivia Solidarity Campaigns, Hands Off Venezuela and more.
