British Medical Association & Interserve PLC: Pay Your Cleaners the London Living Wage!

      IWW BMA Cleaners

      London, United Kingdom

We, the undersigned, express our concern at the poverty level minimum wage being paid to cleaning staff, contracted by Interserve plc, at BMA House, the headquarters and conference centre of the British Medical Association. We are dismayed that the British Medical Association, a Trade Union for medical practitioners, wilfully employs a contractor that does not currently pay cleaning staff a London Living Wage of £8:30 per hour.

We are in full agreement with London's Mayor Boris Johnson that "Londoners deserve proper reward for their labours". Furthermore the Mayor notes that "I’m delighted that a growing number of organisations recognise that it suits them as well as their staff to pay the London Living Wage”.

We urge the British Medical Association to join the list of organisations that ensures all workers based at its headquarters - including outsourced staff - are paid enough so that they and their families can lead a healthy and dignified life.

      A junior doctor and BMA member, I am surprised that my trade union is not paying its staff a living wage: this must change.

      As a medical student and BMA member, I hate to see my union contract a company that makes its employees work for such unacceptable wages. The BMA is better than this! Or at least it should be.

      To ensure people want to stay in work and can stay in work and not need support from the welfare state. Companies should provide a living wage becasue the only other place these individuals will be supported is from the state.
