Union uses Royal Wedding to campaign for cleaners' pay

U.K. U.K.
The PCS civil service union took to the streets on Friday 29 April to call for a living wage for cleaners at the Royal residences in London including Buckingham Palace. The union says that the cleaners, employed by private contractors, get just £6.45 (€7.23) an hour. This is above the national minimum wage of £5.93 (€6.65) but below the rate demanded by the union of £7.85 (€8.80). This is the living wage for London calculated by the Greater London Authority and endorsed even by the current Conservative major of London.
