Low paid cleaners, porters, catering and security staff in Barts Health Trust, members of Unite the Union are currently on strike action against private contractor Serco. They are asking for a 30p an hour pay rise and an end to their excessive workload. Serco makes over £80 million profit yet it refuses this modest increase.

Last Saturday 15 July a demo was called in support of this struggle. John McDonnell came along to support it and raised the issue of low pay on the Marr Show the following day using a cleaner's pay slip. 

Prices keep going up. We all deserve a pay rise. We, the undersigned, support this struggle and demand from Serco to:

1. Pay up- immediate implementation of extra 30p/hr 

2. An end to the increased and unmanageable workload imposed by Serco.

And from Barts Health Trust

3. To intervene to ensure that the above are carried through.
