PCS members at beleaguered contractor Interserve, working at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, will take strike action following the company’s refusal to negotiate with the union on redundancies, contractual changes to pay dates, and attacks on holiday pay and sick pay. The strike action will took place on 1 and 2 May and was 100% supported by members who are angry at Interserve for making workers redundant, imposing detrimental changes and refusing to negotiate with PCS reps. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND YOUR DONATIONS SO FAR. More action could be needed so please keep donating to support these low paid workers fighting for what they due. Cleaners at the company have raised concerns about unclear contracts, shortages in holiday pay and the lack of back pay from increases they were due from August 2018. Our members working for Interserve provide services including facilities management, maintenance, porterage and cleaning in a number of government departments. There has been mounting concern for the finances of the company since last year. However the government accepted a bid by Interserve to run FCO services in August 2018. PCS General Secretary Mark Serwotka said: This is a powerful message that our members are sending. They will not stand by while a failing company like Interserve attacks their terms and conditions and at the same time, refuses to negotiate with the union. Staff have told us that changes to their pay dates have left them out of pocket and struggling to make ends meet. The whole debacle shows that Interserve should never have been awarded the contract at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Ministers cannot escape their responsibility and they should have learned from the disaster at Carillion that contracting out doesn’t make sense financially. All these jobs at the FCO and elsewhere must be safeguarded and brought back in-house as soon as possible."
