Grassroots workers’ struggles in London: John Lewis and Deliveroo

At 4pm on Saturday 5th November, John Lewis cleaners will be holding a protest outside the flagship store on Oxford Street, demanding to be brought into the partnership and receive the same conditions as all other in-house staff.

They also suggest emailing John Lewis’ multi-millionaire chairman Charlie Mayfield at charlie_mayfield@johnlewis.co.uk to object to him denying cleaners the rights enjoyed by other staff members. The John Lewis cleaners protest will also be following on from a national museums, libraries and galleries demonstration earlier in the day, and that evening will also see the Million Mask March, if anyone wants to make a full day of it.

On Tuesday the 8th, the fledgling food delivery drivers union will be holding an open meeting for supporters to learn about the situation with the Deliveroo campaign, what Deliveroo drivers have been up to, and what they have planned for the near future, so come along if you want to find out more about one of the boldest and most inspiring workplace disputes in recent years. The venue will be the Marchmont Street Community Centre, 62 Marchmont St, WC1N 1AB.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
