Cleaners protest at Facebook London HQ, London, UK.Add to Lightbox Download
July 7, 2017 - London, UK - London, UK. 7th July 2017. A cleaner holds up a poster 'No to Nepotism'' at the protest by the Cleaners and Allied Independent Workers Union (CAIWU) outside Facebook's offices in London against the 'Ugly Face of Facebook' calling for the cleaners there to be paid the London Living Wage and for a proper investigation into allegations of racism, bullying and nepotism by the manager on site. There are two redundant levels of management at these offices; rather than employing cleaners directly, Facebook uses the property management company JLL who use Peartree cleaning services to employ the cleaners; money which should go to the workers goes to these unnecessary levels of management and profit. Security staff at the site watched the protest, leading away several people who tried to interfere with it, and CAIWU were thanked for shortening their planned noisy protest to avoid undue interference with a community Mela taking place in the square. Several people from Peartree also came to watch the protest and their commercial director Stuart Conroy came for a brief discussion with the protest organiser Alberto Durango after the protest ended.
