New Campaign for outsourced workers at Senate House – please sign our petition!

Thanks to everyone who supported our successful campaign to have the London Living Wage implemented at the University of London.

This finally happened in July – and your help was crucial in pressurising the University.

However, our contracted workers are now being pressurised to work harder as the outsourced companies and the University seek to recoup the small additional outlay in wages they are now making.

Furthermore, in terms of sick pay, holidays, pensions, payslip problems, workplace bullying and a host of other issues the outsourced workers are still much worse off than University employees.

There are three areas (‘tres cosas’) where the disparity between University and contract workers is greatest – SICK PAY, HOLIDAYS and PENSIONS.

The next stage in the campaign is to persuade the University to ensure that all workers have the same rights in these three areas. It is eminently affordable, and it is the only right thing to do.

Please sign this new petition – http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/senate-house-inhouse-campaign/ – and please forward it to others where you can.

 More info can be found on our campaign facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/3coca – still in its nascent stages…
