Write to London Bridge Hospital: End poverty pay & poor treatment of cleaners!
Use this quick tool to back the workers by writing to the London Bridge Hospital bosses at HCA Healthcare and Compass Group.
Cleaners at multi-million private hospital London Bridge Hospital & Compass Group UK are taking action against:
- Health & Safety violations!
- Poverty pay!
- No sick pay!
- Harassment by management!
London Bridge Hospital is part of multi-billion HCA Healthcare which took £190 million of NHS money during covid. Its majority-migrant outsourced cleaners are on poverty wages, paid well below London Living Wage!
Cleaners worked through the pandemic cleaning covid wards with NO PPE and without adequate training or contamination protocols! Many workers caught covid at work. To make things worse, outsourced cleaners don’t get proper sick pay so when they catch covid they have to subsist on a measly £96.35 a week! Cleaners cannot afford to isolate when sick.
Cleaners are denied the same terms & conditions as their directly-employed colleagues. This includes access to the hospital! If they have a medical emergency, they are sent to another hospital! To top it all off, cleaners are frequently victims of harassment and bullying from management.
Outsourced cleaners at London Bridge Hospital & Compass Group are treated like second-class citizens. Dangerous work and harassment for poverty pay: this is the reality of the #CompassLife at #TeamCompass.
