On the 30th June Mr Aquilino Antonio Cueva Castillo (also know as Antonio), one of the Euston Tower cleaners, was called in to a meeting by ISS management and told that he was being made redundant. His last day would be the 22nd July. The reason given for Antonio’s redundancy is ‘cost cutting’. ISS took over the Euston Tower cleaning contract 6 months ago and are one of the world’s leading providers in facility services. In 2009 ISS made £21 million profit in the UK, their director was paid an estimated £350,000 yet their employees were paid an average of just £11,267.31. This is despite a profit per employee of £827.28, over two thirds of their average wage.* Euston Tower currently has 3 full time cleaners in order to provide a minimum efficient service. We can't afford to lose a cleaner and Antonio can't afford to lose his job. We, the undersigned, oppose this redundancy. *estimated figures from the TUC's Worksmart site. The average wage figure isn't pro-rata.

eddy, United Kingdom3 years ago Comments: i fully support this petition ISS took over the lewisham cleaning contact years ago i was made redundant after 16 years of service to lewisham ISS gave the same reason. Iss have run the lewisham contract in to the ground, they now have cut the service to below min safe level and have a very high staff turn over as no one will work for the wage and hours iss want to pay. when i was working i found the contract manager to be nothing more then a self centered smug bully whos answer to everything was if you don't like it leave plenty of people willing to do the job.
