Feb 23, 2018 — DAILY MAIL CLEANERS TO STRIKE FOR A LIVING WAGE!

United Voices of the World (UVW) is a trade union which represents low paid, migrant and precarious workers including the cleaners at the Daily Mail newspaper in London.

This tabloid rag is infamous for its thinly-veiled hatred of migrants — particularly poor, black and minority ethnic migrants.

So, guess who cleans the muck at the Daily Mail? None other than black and minority ethnic migrants, who earn poverty wages!

These cleaners deserve the London Living Wage of £10.20 per hour, but instead are made to make do with the poverty wage of £7.50 while Viscount Rothermere, crooked owner of the Daily Mail, shuffles his millions away to the island of Bermuda.

Furthermore, the Mail's editor, Paul Dacre, is paid around £2.5 million a year while essential services have been outsourced to a contractor, Mitie, offering cleaners the bare minimum. In fact, the Mail has just demanded that Mitie offer the same cleaning service to them for £30K a year less per year which has led to two cleaners getting the sack an the rest of the team having to pick up their workloads.

★ LET'S BEAT THE BOSSES AND SWEEP AWAY POVERTY PAY!

This campaign must grow stronger each day that the Mail refuses to pay their cleaners a dignified wage. So, please contribute whatever you can

Cleaners will be leading this fight and with a healthy strike fund, UVW will pay the wages of striking cleaners while dozens of supporters stage daily, noisy protests.

★ FOLLOW THE CAMPAIGN, SUPPORT THE CLEANERS!

UVW is determined to add the Daily Mail to a winning streak that has recently included Harrods, Sotheby's, and the LSE University so please spread the word and contribute whatever you can to ensure Justice for Cleaners!
