On behalf of the Central London Valuation branch of PCS (Public & Commercial Services Union) we are writing to protest at the appalling victimisation of union members amongst your cleaning staff.
> Sub-contracting work out does not absolve SOAS management from moral and social responsibility for those who work in your institution. You were happy to benefit from them being paid poverty wages and now appear content to let them be attacked for their courage in standing together and fighting for a living wage.
> As public sector workers in central London we are only too aware of the role of "outsourcing" in driving down living standards and conditions for working people; that it should now be enforced by "dawn raids" is utterly unacceptable.
> A A Reid (Branch Secretary)
