West Coast Main Line Cleaners' Pay

EDM number 2165 in 2010-12, proposed by John McDonnell on 12/09/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Pay, Railways and Service industries.

That this House recognises the important work carried out by cleaning staff on the national rail network; is concerned that Carlisle Cleaning and Support Services (CCSS), responsible for cleaning services on the West Coast Main Line (WCML), has imposed on its staff an increase of one per cent. in basic rates of pay this year, equivalent to an extra six pence per hour; is appalled at the mean spirited attitude exhibited in this meagre pay rise; opposes CCSS's decision to derecognise the National Union of Rail Maritime and Transport Workers on the WCML cleaning contract; and calls on CCSS to step back from this confrontational approach to industrial relations and to award its hard working staff a pay increase that will deliver dignity at work and a living wage.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
