Workers at London’s tourist attractions are on strike over pay
The GMB union said 900 of its members employed by the City of London Corporation will leave landmarks such as Tower Bridge, the Barbican, museums, gardens, parks and markets on May 25 after voting overwhelmingly for industrial action .
GMB London region organizer Anna Lee said: “This vote and support for strike action confirms how strong our members feel and how devastating this cost of living crisis is being for them and their families.”
“This ‘you and us’ culture within the Corporation of London has to end.
“It’s not okay for workers to claim food expenses while company bosses spend thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money on entertainment – while telling employees there’s no money to pay.”
“Our members do not take this measure lightly, but our demands for fair payment have fallen on deaf ears for months.
“No one wants to go on strike, but our members feel they are not being listened to and now feel they have no alternative.
“GMB calls on the City of London Corporation to properly value and respect its employees and return to the negotiating table.”
