RMT cleaners working for ISS on the East Coast contract are to strike again this week.

The workers have been battling over pay levels in a long running campaign, with the company refusing to grant any increase since 2011, a position the union has described as “simply disgraceful and based on nothing but pure greed”.

RMT has confirmed that there will be a strike between midnight, Friday August 15, and midnight, Saturday August 16. Picket lines will be mounted at East Coast stations.
