RMT Mitie station and accommodation cleaners on the Merseyrail Contract are taking strike action and demonstrating in support of pay justice this Friday - 23rd July.
The demonstration, involving the cleaners and their supporters, will be outside Mitie and Merseyrail's Liverpool Headquarters at Rail House, Lord Nelson Street, Liverpool L1 1JF at 8am on Friday 23rd July.
The cleaners voted by a massive majority for action over the offfer of a pitiful increase in their poverty pay rates which would have still left them far short of the Real Living Wage and the absolute minimum of £10 an hour which RMT is campaigning for as recognition of these real hero's of the COVID pandemic who have worked throughout.
The cleaners are also protesting the imposition of punitive rosters and attacks on holiday pay.
