After a high-profile campaign earlier this year, cleaners at London Bridge hospital have won a battle to be brought in-house.

The workers are in the IWGB union. But the fight is far from over.

Workers are still paid less than the London Living Wage and are still being denied the same conditions as other workers at the hospital.

Around 400 workers for Bestfood drivers are planning to strike. The action could potentially disrupt major food chains.

Well over half of the workers that were balloted voted to strike. Strike dates were set to be announced in the next few days.

Bah humbug bosses at Thomas Swan

Chemical company, Thomas Swan, is trying to break the morale of workers who are planning to strike.

Almost all of the GMB members at Thomas Swan voted to strike earlier this month, which has terrified the bosses at the firm.

Now they are using dirty tactics to try and stop the strikes. Workers plan to strike on 7, 14 and 21 December and 4 January.
