Equity supports cleaners in dispute at ROH
17 January 2014
Equity and the Musicians Union have written to Alex Beard, Chief Executive of the Royal Opera House about the forthcoming strike action to be taken by cleaning staff at the venue during the BAFTA film awards next month.
Cleaners working at the Opera House employed by the firm MITIE are calling for a living wage to be paid to them. Equity has expressed it's support for workers seeking a Living Wage and drawn attention to our own campaign on low pay/no pay work.
Alex Beard, Chief Executive of the Royal Opera House has responded to Equity with assurances that the ROH is committed to working with MITIE to achieve the London Living Wage for the ROH cleaners.
