Striking primary school cleaners

I am angered that three striking primary school cleaners from Kinsley have been sacked. When I met them, they explained how their wages were cut following the outsourcing of their contracts to a private company.

Outsourcing is bad for our public services and workers. The cleaners’ jobs must be brought back in-house with fair pay and conditions.

The race to the bottom in wages and working conditions faced by huge numbers of workers right across Britain is a national disgrace and Labour would put a stop to it.
