United Kingdom -Cleaners win pay rise -November 19, 2012

Outsourced cleaners that work at four different John Lewis sites in London and are employed by cleaning contractor Integrated Cleaning Management (ICM) won a 9% pay rise as a result of an IWW campaign. The cleaners had seen their hours reduce and workload increase, while they were paid minimum wage of £6.19. The increase, backdated 5 months, takes their pay to £6.72 per hour at three central London sites, and £6.50 at one outer London site. Supervisors will now get £8.00 per hour and £7.84 respectively.
