Regional Organiser's Report on I.S.S. (Cleaners)

cleaners protestI met with I.S.S. management on Thursday 13th August to discuss the £550,000 savings that Metronet wish them to make.

1. I.S.S. guaranteed that no I.S.S employees would be made redundant. All redundancies would come from agency staff.

2. Where possible existing I.S.S. staff would be used to cover all the needed positions in workplaces.

3. I.S.S would seek to avoid a cut in the working week by two and a half hours by asking existing staff to consider moving to other workplaces.

4. Management have asked me to encourage staff where it is at all possible to put themselves forward for training to be able to take on duties which are currently being covered by agency staff. I think that our members should do this if they can to help with this situation and to further their own careers.

All cleaning members are invited to a meeting on 26th August 2009 at the Exmouth Arms, 1 Starcross street, NW1 2HR at 17:00 hours.

Yours sincerely

Steve Hedley
Regional Organiser
