Taking cue from the various groups of cleaners, cleaners employed within the London Underground have organised a series of protests, the earliest of which will take place later this week. The issue in the sector are only deepening and every group has become hypersensitive towards their pay and the conditions they are offered.
Although most professionals have kept their protests at a slightly smaller scale, the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union consider taking a bigger and bolder approach. The Thursday protest is a launch pad for a four-day campaign, which will function on several levels.
Protesters are set to engage not only on an industrial, but politic and public levels, in order to bring as much attention towards the troubles in the industry and inhumane payment practices. What the public can expect for certain is company shaming among other actions.
