Equality and Human Rights Submission

Submissions have been made on behalf of the Hotel Workers Branch to the UK Equality and Human Rights Commission investigation into workers rights in the cleaning sector. Our submission highlights the regular abuse by agencies and sub-contractors of workers right in many hotel housekeeping departments in hotels across London.

Amongst the changes recommended in our submission is a sectoral agreement on minimum employment standards(to include agency and sub-contacted staff), HMRC investigation into minimum wage abuse by agencies and recognition in law of the status of collective greivances, ensuring the right to freedom of association on issues of common concern for workers is respected.
