London Student newspaper has reported on IWGB members at UoL winning concessions following their hugely impressive 2 day strike. Workers employed for more than 3 months will get sick pay, and after 3 years 25 days annual holiday, 22 days for all other workers.
The striking staff will also be able to join Balfour Beatty’s pension scheme. These concessions by UoL management to the workers’ demands put the outsourced staff in line with directly employed workers on holidays with similar sick pay rights. IWGB are celebrating the victory, but know they’ll have to continue to fight to ensure their demands are met.
UoL are still refusing to recognise or even speak to the workers trade union, IWGB. University management have been forced to concede by the strong display on the pickets, and the determination by IWGB members to strike and win!
The NSSN sends its congratulations to the 3 Cosas workers and the IWGB
