Cleaners win at the LSE!

Cautiously pessimistic

This week saw an impressive victory for organised workers, as the “LSE 3” – three cleaners who were sacked at the London School of Economics – have been reinstated following a campaign by the United Voices of the World union. It’s apparently the first time that their employer, Noonan, has ever overturned this kind of a decision.

The UVW have certainly been keeping themselves busy lately, with a very impressive list of activities in the first few months of this year, including holding a vigil for a worker who passed away from a heart attack that seems to have been caused by workplace bullying and stress.

Not content to rest on their laurels, they’re now launching an ambitious attempt to organise Topshop, and are asking people to turn up at the Oxford Street Topshop on March 12th to support their demand for the London Living Wage.
